Pot Sizes Explained

Your plant will be delivered in a 15cm nursery pot with trails of approx 10cm. When ordering a plant for a decorative plant pot, please ensure the nursery pot is a couple of centimeters smaller that the decorative pot.

Unpacking Your Plant

When your plant is packed, the growers will ensure the plant is packed tightly to ensure they are protected during transit. Open the outer packing and you may find that some stems, vines or leaves need to be unfurled. Don't rush, transporting plants can be a little stressful for them so slowly tease apart over the coming days. Some loss of leaves is unavoidable, however all of our plants are sent in top health so will recover and regenerate accordingly with their species.

A Bit About Tradescantia Plants

The Tradescantia genus is a collection of approximately 75 herbaceous perennial wild flowers in the family Commelinaceae, native to parts of Canada, Argentina and the West Indies. They were introduced to Europe as ornamental house plants in the 17th century.

Most Tradescantias are trailing or clump forming, but there are a few that are climbing species too. Tradescantias make a very rewarding house plant due to their quick and vigorous growing habits. We all know it’s not all about size though! The Tradescantias make a fabulous house plant as the beauty of this plant is in the range of colours in its leaves (Joseph’s technicolour dream coat - eat your heart out!).

Tradescantia make great house plants as they are very forgiving if you forget to water them once in a while. They are not a succulent (although often mistaken for a succulent plant), as they have fleshy leaves and stems. This enables them to store a fair bit of water.

The Tradescantia genus has a little royalty in its history – named after John Tradescant – a highly skilled gardener employed by King Charles I.
