One of our all-time favourite plants, the Nanouk is a treat to the eyes as it shows off its beautiful purple, pink and green leaves.
Its full Latin name is "Tradescantia fluminensis ‘Tricolor’", it is also known as a "Wandering Dude" or "Wandering Jew"
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 soft pink colouration
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
