Position Tradescantia in a warm room away from cold draughts and radiators, with an average temperature of 18C (65F) - 27C (80F). For the best leaf colour, choose a bright position in good light, but away from the glare of direct sun.
Water frequently to maintain evenly moist compost. Avoid leaving Tradescantia in standing water as this may cause it to rot. House plants should be fed regularly between March and September when they are in active growth. Tradescantia will benefit from regular misting to increase humidity and prevent the leaf edges drying out.
