I love those. Just today I’m trying to figure out where to put them. I had them outside in the summer in shade 😊💕. I wish I could have them inside but this darn house faces northeast and my windows just arnt sunny enough. Did yours need to have a lot of sun inside????😊💕

Hi @terrimclaughlin ! I haven't had one of these plants for about 13 years, and just got this one a couple of weeks ago. I am still trying to figure out the best place in my house. Right now, it is on a countertop about 10 feet back from bright south-facing windows, but I think it needs brighter. I feel like the vibrancy and depth of the purple are suffering a little. I might move it to my "fern forest" corner. There's an LED grow light over there that keeps my jewel orchids happy.

This is lovely ! I love all of the Tradescantia, but zebrina is my favorite. I have started so many because I can't stand the thought of throwing any of it away.☺️
