We here at Rice Road love Tradescantia, so when we had the chance to bring in the Albovitatta, whose bright whites replace the purples we've come to expect, we jumped on them!
- Beloved as an Annual, many are surprised to learn that it can flourish as a houseplant year-long as well!
- Keep in bright, indirect light in order for the leaves to keep their vibrant white variegation.
- During spring/summer months, water regularly and do not allow the soil to dry out entirely - keep the soil moist, but not wet. During cooler months, allow it to dry out slightly before watering again.
- If the plant is getting "leggy" (too many stems, and not enough leaves), it's time to prune: trim/pinch back at the leaf nodes to encourage new growth.
