Plant Care


During summer, Water daily or when the soil starts to become slightly dry at the top. During Winter season water once in 2 days or when the soil starts to become slightly dry at the top. Keep the soil lightly moist at all times, but do not overwater as this will cause brown spots and leaf drop. Curly or dry leaves suggest, the plant is dry and needs watering. Water in the early morning or late evening when temperatures are cooler. Always check your soil before watering.


During summer season keep the plants in shaded area and during winter season plants can withstand direct/indirect light.


During summer season or when the temperature is above 45°C place the plant in shaded area. During winter season or the when the temperature is below 45°C the plants can be directly placed in direct/indirect sunlight.

Plant Bio
Tradescantia pallida 'Purple Heart' 

Tradescantia pallida is a tender evergreen perennial native to northeast Mexico, from Tamaulipas to Yucatan.

It is typically grown as an ornamental, for its striking purple foliage.

Easily grown in rich, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade.

If you want some Deep Purple, drench this beauty in sunlight.

Shelter from strong winds, as it can damage the fragile stems.

Water freely in dry weather.

Drought tolerant once established.

Close to a disease free plant as there is in nature.

You can also grow the plant all year round as an indoor plant.

It's one of the easiest plants to root, which means you can start your own with a cutting.

The long, violet-purple leaves grow to about 6"-7".

Either planted somewhere on your property grounds or in a container, it looks like a wave of purple.

Summer is when the Purple Heart blooms, and the light pink flowers make for a colorful show in your garden.
