Moderate room (around 40% relative humidity).

Tradescantia Spathacea | Rhoeo | Moses in the Cradle | Boatlily growth pattern and natural habitat give us some good care indications. This is a rather low plant that is used to being shaded by taller trees, so it prefers indirect light. It won’t react well to low temperatures and although its leaves are slightly fleshy it won’t appreciate its soil being left to dry out completely. However, the plant does not like drafts or temperature changes that slow down growth. Feed monthly with a balanced, water-soluble houseplant fertilizer in spring and summer, while the plant is actively growing. However, remove offshoots that grow around the plant with some roots attached and pot separately. Spring is the best time to propagate Moses in the Cradle because it is starting its most vigorous time of growth. Although the species isn’t explicitly toxic, Tradescantia spathacea leaves contain irritating sap that can hurt your cat’s, dog’s, or even child’s mouth and other areas it touches. So keep this plant out of their reach. Also, be careful when repotting.
