Felix The Tradescantia care guide

Lighting for your Tradescantia

Bright but indirect sunlight is perfect for Felix. He likes a bright spot but his leaves are a little bit delicate so they might burn in strong direct rays.


Watering your Tradescantia

Moist but not soggy. Make sure you only water when the top half of the soil is dry. When you water Felix completely soak him and water again when the top half of the soil is dry.


Humidity for your Tradescantia

Felix does like a bit of humidity so he will like to be next to other houseplants which will increase the humidity around him.


What Fertiliser should I use for my Tradescantia

Once every 2-3 weeks in the spring and summer is great.


Repotting your Tradescantia

Every couple of years or when the roots start to appear out of the bottom of the pot.
