Tradescantia nanouk is a gorgeous houseplant, characterized by its lavender and earthy green leaves. This plant is happy cascading down from a hanging basket, or trailing across a surface in your home. It will appreciate humidity, so feel free to mist the leaves regularly, use a humidifier, or place your Nanouk somewhere near a sink or shower. This plant won't be happy in direct sun, but make sure it gets enough light or the vibrant leaf color will start to fade.
Ease: Easy Breezy
Pet Friendly: No
Care: If your Tradescantia is getting leggy (leaves closest to the root ball are falling off) you can trim back the edges of the stems to encourage a fuller appearance.
