Tradescantia zebrina, formerly known as Zebrina pendula, is a species of spiderwort commonly known as an inch plant or wandering Jew. Inch plant care requires bright, indirect light. If the light is too dim, the distinctive leaf markings will fade. Keep the soil slightly moist, but don’t water directly into the crown as this will cause an unsightly rot. Care should be taken, particularly in winter, that the plant doesn’t become too dry. Mist inch plants frequently. Feed your plant monthly with a half-strength liquid fertilizer. An important part of growing inch plants is pinching back the long, vining tendrils. Pinch back about a fourth of the plant to encourage branching and increase fullness. Inch plants have a relatively short lifespan, and do not age well. No matter how attentive your inch plant care is, before long it will lose its leaves at the base, while its long legs keep growing. This means it’s time to renew your plant by taking cuttings and rooting them. Don’t be surprised if your inch plants need to be renewed once a year or so.
