Tradescantia 'Spiderwort' Purple Hanging Basket"

Spiderwort plants are virtually carefree. Like their garden-varieties counterparts, the houseplant varieties produce flowers with three petals, although they are not particularly showy in these species. The blooms can be white, purple, pink, and other similar colours—depending on species and variety—and appear regularly.

How to care for your new Spiderwort plant: 


SUNLIGHT: Spiderwort plants do best in bright, indirect sunlight. Place them nearby a window that boasts at least eight hours of sun a day, but be careful to avoid any direct rays, which can cause the leaves to scorch. If you notice the colour or variegation on your leaves is beginning to fade, that's a sure sign that the plant isn't getting enough light.


WATER: These plants prefer to be kept consistently moist and will thrive if watered weekly in the summer and less frequently in the fall and winter. To check if your plant is ready for watering, feel the soil a few inches down in the pot. If it's dry, it's time to water your plant.


HUMIDITY/TEMPERATURE: Any of the species of spiderwort plants will thrive at temperatures between 65 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit, and they'll also do fine in warmer temperatures. However, the plants should not be kept in sustained temperatures below 50 degrees Fahrenheit, as it might discolor or damage their leaves.


TIPS: When planted outdoors, spiderwort is considered to be an invasive weed.


 * Note: These plants are toxic to pets & humans when ingested.
