Description
Add a bright splash of colour to your home with Tradescantia spathacea 'Sitara'. Narrow, variegated foliage forms a colourful rosette, often producing new rosettes from the base to form a fabulous, bushy plant. The bright purple-pink and green variegation makes this house plant a striking focal point, especially for modern, contemporary rooms. This eye-catching plant is easy to grow in a warm room with good humidity – perfect for a bright kitchen! Height and spread: 30cm (12").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Please note: Some houseplants are toxic or harmful to pets if ingested. If you believe your pet has consumed a poisonous plant then seek veterinary attention immediately. Take a sample of the plant with you.

How to Grow
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.
More Info
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.
