  • Scientific Name: Tradescantia albiflora 'Nanouk'
  • Common Names: Fantasy Venice, Wandering Dude 'Nanouk'
  • Native Region: Originally cultivated in the Netherlands, bred for its striking variegation and ease of care.

Light Requirements: Prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some direct sunlight, particularly in the morning or late afternoon, but should be protected from intense midday sun to prevent leaf burn.

Watering Needs: Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. Tradescantia prefer to be kept on the drier side rather than constantly moist. Water thoroughly when the topsoil feels dry to the touch. Reduce watering frequency during the winter months when growth slows. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so ensure proper drainage.

Soil Preference: Use a well-draining potting mix. A standard houseplant potting mix with added perlite or sand works well to ensure good drainage and aeration.

How to Fertilize: Fertilize during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble houseplant fertilizer. Apply fertilizer at half-strength every 4-6 weeks. Avoid over-fertilizing, as this can lead to leggy growth.

Hardiness Zone: Typically grown as a container plant in zones 10-11. It is not frost-tolerant and should be protected from temperatures below 50°F (10°C).

Pet Safety: Tradescantia species are considered mildly toxic to pets if ingested. They can cause gastrointestinal upset such as vomiting or diarrhea. Keep it out of reach of curious pets and children.

Additional Care Tips: Pinch back the stems regularly to encourage a bushier growth habit and prevent legginess. Repot every 1-2 years as needed to refresh the soil and provide more growing space.
