Wandering Trailing Plant Tradescantia Zebrina is a beautiful and low-maintenance houseplant that will bring a pop of color to any room. With its unique and eye-catching green and purple striped leaves, this plant will be a conversation starter and attractive addition to any decor style.

This plant is part of the Tradescantia genus and is native to Mexico and Central America. It is a trailing plant, meaning that it will grow long stems that will hang down and trail over the edge of its container. This makes it perfect for a hanging basket, a shelf, or a windowsill where its leaves can drape downward.

The Tradescantia Zebrina is an easy-to-care-for plant that can adapt to a variety of growing conditions. It thrives in bright, indirect light and prefers evenly moist soil, but it can also tolerate some neglect and can survive in lower light conditions. The plant is also known to be a fast grower, so you will be able to enjoy its beauty in no time.

In addition to its beauty, the Tradescantia Zebrina is also known to purify the air by removing harmful toxins, making it attractive and beneficial addition to your home.

Bring the Wandering Trailing Plant Tradescantia Zebrina into your home today and enjoy its unique beauty and low-maintenance care for years to come!

I know the wanderers plants look pretty when hanging- but there leaves inevitably turn brown bc the vines like to be in contact with earth… its a better idea for this plant to be in a saucer type pot so it has lots of surface area to expand onto.


Just adorable. Haven’t had anything bad yet to say on the plants they offer.
