Tradescantia Andersonia 'Blushing Bride'

Size Cutting

Let's talk about a plant called Tradescantia, which is also known as the Wandering Jew. It's a very popular houseplant that people all over the world like to grow.

Now, this particular Tradescantia we're going to talk about is a bit special. Most of the time, it looks green and has strong, tall stems with leaves that have plenty of space between them, kind of like a bush.

But here's the cool part! When the weather gets cooler in the fall, a special thing happens inside this plant. There's a virus (not the kind that makes people sick, don't worry) that becomes active, and it gives the plant its unique colors. It's like the plant blushes, turning all pretty in shades of pink and white. This beautiful transformation happens from fall until spring, and it's really something special to see.

You will receive a cutting that is 10cm to 15cm long. Depending on the weather at the time, we may trim lower leaves to prevent dehydration during transit.


All of our succulents are grown in Melbourne's inner suburbs under natural conditions. They are Melbourne weather hardy.
