Tradescantia, known in Italy as "Erba Miseria", is an original plant in Central and South America. Its peculiarity is a prostrate and reluctant, but at the same time compact. An even more singular feature of this variety ("Purple Flame") is the two-colored leave, "dark" dark green leaf on the upper and purple-magenta page on the bottom page. Its leaves are therefore an important element of distinction not only from other plants but also from other varieties of Tradescantia, much less decorative. It is an easy-growing plant, and is great for giving a touch of color to your apartment.

Exposure and brightness: Love light but not direct sunlight. At the cultivation site, there is no stagnant air, even if it does not withstand cold currents.

Temperature: It does not have problems with high temperatures while it suffers with temperatures below 10 °. Soil type: It is a plant that is to be replenished every year at the beginning of spring: It requires light, fibrous and spongy soil and capable of retaining moisture without getting dry. It is advisable to mix soil with leaves and peat with the addition of sand.

Irrigation: There is a need for plenty of water throughout the spring-summer period: the soil must be constantly moist. In the autumn-winter period, when the plant starts vegetative rest, it should be watered enough to keep the ground just wet but let it dry on the surface between a watering and the other. Spray the hair on a regular basis to ensure proper humidity.

Fertilization: From spring to late summer every 15 days, with liquid fertilizer NPK rich in microelements, mixed with irrigation water. In the winter period it is suspended.

N.B. The specifications described above may vary depending on the climate of the area where the plant is placed and the season.

Pianta stupenda 😍 vaso anche! Bravissimi!!

Bella ed elegante, imballata con cura e con un vaso semplice ma d'effetto. Sarebbe bello poter avere, insieme alla pianta, le indicazioni di manutenzione all'interno del pacco!

Pianta stupenda, colori brillanti e sfumature meravigliose.

Vaso carino, abbastanza spesso, bene abbinato con la pianta.
