Tradescantia Callisia elegans (also known as Callisia gentlei), can also be found under the common name "Striped Inch Plant" due to the bright white pinstriping on its leaves. The leaves are thicker and soft to the touch, and who off purple on their undersides.
- When grown in bright indirect, or even some direct light, the plant will try to remain compact.
- When grown in areas with lower levels of light, the plant will appear a deeper green and its variegation may dull somewhat, however it will begin to get a bit lanky - making it great for hanging baskets!
- Water when the top inch of soil is dry, and water thoroughly, allowing any excess to drain away completely.
