Scientific Name
Tradescantia albiflora (Tradescant's plant with white flowers) 'Nanouk'

Common Name
Nanouk tradescantia, Fantasy Venice, Wandering Jew, Spiderwort, Tradescantia Bubblegum

Origin
The species is from Central America, but this variety was first grown in the Netherlands.

Description
This variety of Tradescantia is a newer cultivar but has really become popular, and it's easy to see why. Its stunning bubblegum pink variegation really makes it stand out as a truly unusual piece of decor. This variety has denser foliage than most tradescantiae, meaning it will often grow up and out before starting to trail. Growing in more of a bushy formation than many tradescantiae, the Nanouk will repay your care with stunning, standout foliage and splashes of gorgeous colour.

Light
Thrives in bright, indirect light; too little light will leave it leggy and damp, and too much bleached and dried-out.

Water
Water once the pot begins to feel light when lifted; these plants like to be moist, and prefer to be bottom-watered (using a dish underneath rather than pouring onto the soil) to prevent their leaves accumulating damp!

Humidity
Average humidity is fine, but your plant will benefit from an occasional misting or humidity tray.

Soil
Use a moisture-retentive, well-draining mix to keep this thirsty plant happy but not too soggy. Repot every three years if absolutely necessary; this plant is better potbound than drowning in soil.

Food
Feed every four waters in the growing season, reduce to every six in autumn and winter.

Temperature
Temperature should ideally be between 16-30°C- make sure it doesn't drop below 10°C in winter.

Pet-safe
No; while this plant is not toxic, it can cause some bad reactions when eaten by pets, including itchy skin and upset stomachs.

Sprouts Top Tips
To keep tradescantia bushy rather than leggy, you can pinch off or trim longer stems, which can then themselves be propagated, making more plants to spread around your home or share with others!
