Stealing the show amongst trailing plants, the Tradescantia Nanouk or Fantasy Venice is a popular plant, sought-after for its colourful patterning and uncomplicated care requirements.
Cultivated as a robust alternative to its sister, the Zebrina, the pick ‘n’ mix of pinks, greens, whites and purples shimmer on almost plaited fuzzy foliage across long trailing stems. Looking good with very little effort, this plant is a welcome colourful addition to any living space.
Watch that watering! Overwatering this plant can cause root rot and fungal infections. Allow top inch of the soil to dry out between watering.
A bit green around the gills! If your plant doesn’t get enough light, it will lose its bright pinks and purples, appearing greener.
Stop Top Rot! Where possible, water this plant using the bottom-up method, by sitting the grow pot in a basin of water. Dense wet foliage is susceptible to rot.
