I’m still working on introducing all of the houseplants I added to my home in January. Here’s the next one:
Wandering Jew (Tradescantia zebrina) is considered non-toxic but the sap can be a skin irritant. It’s not really a problem because it’s grown indoors in hanging baskets where it won’t be a nuisance.
It’s an easy to grow and striking plant that prefers bright indirect light. For thick greenery and a nice full look in your hanging pot, you can prune back long trailing stems. The cuttings can be used to propagate new plants, so get them started if you would like to fill in an empty spot or give to a friend.
Although it does flower, they are small and not very noticeable.
