Tradescantia Fluminensis Quadricolor Additional Care Guide
The Tradescantia Fluminensis Quadricolor, also known as the Wandering Jew or Spiderwort, is a beautiful and easy-to-care-for houseplant. It is known for its striking variegated foliage, which can range in color from green and pink to purple and silver.
While the Tradescantia Fluminensis Quadricolor is relatively low-maintenance, there are a few additional things you can do to keep it looking its best:
Fertilize your plant every two weeks during the growing season with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength. This will help to ensure that your plant has the nutrients it needs to produce new growth and maintain its vibrant colors.
Mist your plant regularly, especially during the hot summer months. Tradescantia plants prefer humid environments, so misting will help to keep them happy and healthy. You can also place your plant on a pebble tray filled with water to increase the humidity around it.
Prune your plant regularly to remove dead or dying leaves and stems. This will help to encourage new growth and keep your plant looking neat. You can also prune your plant to shape it or to create new plants.
Repot your plant every year or two in a pot that is one size larger than the current pot. This will give your plant more room to grow and will also help to refresh the soil. When repotting, use a well-draining potting mix.
Protect your plant from direct sunlight, especially during the hottest part of the day. Direct sunlight can scorch the delicate leaves of the Tradescantia Fluminensis Quadricolor. Instead, place your plant in a spot where it will receive bright, indirect light.
With a bit of extra care, your plant will thrive for many years to come.
Here are some additional tips for keeping your Tradescantia Fluminensis Quadricolor healthy:
- Water your plant deeply when the top inch of soil is dry. Allow the soil to dry out slightly between waterings.

- Inspect your plant regularly for pests and diseases. If you find any pests, treat them immediately with an insecticidal soap or neem oil.
