Tradescantia plant care requires bright indirect light. If the light is too dim, the leaf markings will fade. Keep the soil slightly moist, but don’t water directly into the crown as this will cause an unsightly rot in your Tradescantia plant. Care should be taken, particularly in winter, that the plant doesn’t become too dry. Mist Tradescantia plants frequently. Feed your plant monthly with a half-strength liquid fertilizer. An important part of growing Tradescantia plants is pinching back the long, vining tendrils. Pinch back about a fourth of the plant to encourage to encourage branching and increase fullness.
