Plant Features

The Feeling Flirty™ Purple Tradescantia, a variety of the Tradescantia genus, is an attractive and vibrant houseplant known for its striking purple foliage. Tradescantia plants, often called Spiderwort or Wandering Jew, are popular for their fast growth and colorful leaves. The Feeling Flirty™ variety stands out with its deep purple leaves, sometimes accented with shades of green or silver, and a velvety texture. This plant is ideal for adding a pop of color to indoor spaces and can be grown in hanging baskets or pots where its trailing habit can be showcased.

Caring for a Feeling Flirty™ Purple Tradescantia involves some specific considerations. Browning leaf tips or fading color can indicate too much direct sunlight or low humidity. Overwatering can lead to root rot, signified by yellowing or mushy leaves. Conversely, underwatering can cause the leaves to become dry and crispy. This plant thrives in bright, indirect light and prefers a well-draining soil mix. Regular pruning can encourage bushier growth and prevent legginess. It's also a good idea to check regularly for common pests like spider mites.
