4" Tradescantia Pallida


We have run out of stock for this item.

Pallida means "pale" and this plant is anything but pale! Plants grown with very bright light, even direct sunlight, have a dark complexion of deepest, darkest purple; indoor grown plants in indirect light will have a diffused green glow. Soft white fur grows all over the foliage. Pallida grows like other Wandering Jew varieties but with thicker leaves closer together. First collected in Mexico in 1902, Pallida has been found in succulent nurseries along with the succulents as well as regular outdoor nurseries and houseplant shops ever since. Sweet little three petaled flowers arrive on stem tips often.

Quick Care Guide:

    • Water - Low (1):  Needs very little water to survive. Wait until the plant is completely dry then fully soak. Drought tolerant by nature.
    • High - (5):  Plant needs a lot of light; direct is even better. These plants do best when placed on a window sill or next to a bright window. Avoid concentrated, hot light from window which may cause burning (magnifying glass effect).      
    • Difficulty - Low (1):  These plants need barely any attention to thrive. Set it and forget it.
