I have 5 of these now. Some bits fell of the parent plant, so I popped them in water and they rooted. I've posted the cuttings up and they're growing well. Such a lovely plant 🪴

A friend gave me a small plant that she’d grown from a cutting but it’s not at all happy. The leaves are drying out and falling off. Where have I gone wrong? I might have to admit failure if I can’t find a way of reviving it 😢

The drying up of the leaves sounds like sunburn, this one is definitely not keen on direct sun, and outside its in good light but no sun at all. If you don't keep it in sun then I'd be inclined to dig it up and see if it has any roots at all...was the cutting small enough that it hadn't taken properly?? @jacaranda

Definitely a nice, easy going plant, and amazingly quick grower @OldMansBeard

That’s interesting, Jason, because it was on a sunny windowsill but I moved it last week because it had started to look sad. My friend is excellent at taking cuttings and she had already potted it up for me but I’ll tip it out of its pot tomorrow and see what the root system looks like. Thanks for your help 😘

Thanks Barbara ❤ Although I don't know what's made the leaves look red in this pic, they're actually purple 💜😄 @jacaranda

Morning All ☕ Been up since 3am, blowing a hoolie all night, snowing first thing, quickly washed away by torrential rain, now just cold, 2°c, maybe an indoor plant sort of weekend 🪴 #tradescantia #wanderingjew #houseplant #houseplants #oldlanehouseplants #indoorgardening #indoorplants #indoorgarden

We are forecast a sunny 17° day on Tuesday, I think that qualifies as a Yorkshire heatwave!!😂 @richard.spicer.7906

Evening All, last plant to add for 2020, a little reduced #tradescantia 🌱 I wish you all the very best for 2021, hopefully a better year than this, but in a reflective moment later on, I'll think on the positives that can be pulled out of 2020 and carry them forward. #bekind #behappy #behopeful #happynewyear
