Plant Features
The Rhoeo Oyster Plant, also known as Tradescantia spathacea, is a colorful and easy-to-care-for houseplant. It's known for its striking foliage, which features a unique combination of green, purple, and pink hues. The leaves are sword-shaped and grow in a rosette pattern, creating an attractive, dense cluster. This plant is relatively low-growing and is often used in container gardens or as ground cover in warmer climates.

For troubleshooting, if the vibrant colors of the leaves start to fade, it could be due to insufficient light. Ensure the plant is placed in a well-lit area. Overwatering can lead to root rot. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering again. If the plant becomes leggy or the foliage loses its density, it might need more light. Move it to a brighter location. Keep an eye out for common pests like spider mites. Treat with insecticidal soap or neem oil if necessary.

Healthy and Large

When I received the plant I could not believe how large and healthy it was, just wonderful. The packaging was excellent. I just wish more growing information was included but it can be found on their website.
