Moses in the cradle (Tradescantia spathacea) is a popular houseplant that is native to Mexico, West Indies, Guatemala, and Central America. It has a sword-shaped leaf, dark green on the upper side and purple underside of the leaves, and unusual bracts that cradle small white flowers as they mature. Growing them as a houseplant is easy and doesn’t need much attention once established.

You can grow them both indoors and outdoors. When growing them indoors, plant them in a beautiful pot and place them in an area where there’s enough sunlight to thrive or on a console table where there is a big mirror hanging on the wall that gives additional beauty and freshness feeling to your space. Moses in the cradle loves a high-humidity environment.

This plant appreciates bright and indirect sunlight to thrive and well-drained soil. Allow the soil to dry before watering them and make sure there is an excellent draining hole in the pot to prevent soggy soil, which leads to root rot. Fertilizing them once a month from spring to summer using a water-soluble balanced fertilizer will help them boost their growth.

You can propagate them via division and stem cuttings. They are toxic to humans and pets, so make sure not to mingle with them. You can grow them in USDA Hardiness Zones 9a-11b.

    Came today I was so excited it had four pieces broken off but I’m hoping to put them in soil and they will root. Other than that they look healthy the box looked as though it had been smushed. But it is ok.

    I have been collecting ferns ever since my daughter passed away last year. Her middle name was Fern. This heart fern is my favorite thus far. It is such a healthy, strong plant. I cannot wait to grow right beside this plant. Thank you so much!
