Lilah, the Tradescantia Fluminensis (Lilac Wandering Jew)

1" STARTER PLANT *Terracotta pot in photo sold separately. Meet Lilah. This cute spunky girl can't wait to spread her cascading rainbow of colorful foliage into your living space. Looking like little pink bows, her fleshy leaves are a mixture of white, green, pink, and mauve stripes and blotches. Treat her right and she may even reward you with her small white flowers. Never stick Lilah in a dark corner, or she will show her dislike of the area by losing her beautiful colors. She will look the prettiest with lots of bright indirect light every day. Lilah loves a good hair cut, and asks that you keep her maintained. Her trailing tendrils have a tendency to get leggy, so pruning them becomes a must if you want to maintain a healthy appearance.
