Tradescantia albiflora 'Nanouk'

Available in a 2” and 4" growers pot.

One of the hardier varieties of Tradescantia due to its larger leaf surface area. This cultivar was produced to grow in a more compact style creating a fuller plant.

Its variegation appears through lavender, purple, and vibrant pink which glows against the multiple shades of green. Stunning!

Watering - Allow the top inch or so to dry out and then give it a thorough watering. They are also known to droop a bit when thirsty, so that is a good sign as well.

Sunshine - To prevent the plant from getting leggy and keep that purple shining through, the Nanouk loves a nice bright space and can even remain happy with some direct sun. If you notice some sunburns on the variegation, then moving it into a spot with less direct sun will do the trick.

Planter - These only need repotted when they become root-bound. When potting up, it's best to choose a pot with drainage and one that is only about an inch wider than what the plant is currently in. See our pottery selection here.
