  • What to expect: You’ll get a healthy plant in a 4″ nursery pot. Please note: The pictures may show an enlarged plant (more mature plant) for the sake of showing off the plant at its peak!

  • Packaging & Shipping: Every plant is fragile and the shipping process is not always kind (or easy). That’s why every plant is packaged snugly with care in a pot with plastic wrapping tightly sitting over the dirt in the pot to prevent it from falling out as well as around the pot to hold it in place inside the shipping box.

  • Returns & Refunds: Due to the nature of the product, we cannot accept returns or refunds. If there are issues with your order, please reach out to us so that we can do our best to find an appropriate resolution.

Care instructions:

  1. Soil: A standard well-drained potting soil mix. We use a mixture of 50% perlite and 50% succulent soil mix to ensure the roots remain aerated and healthy.

  2. Light: Bright, indirect light. If the light is too dim, the leaf markings and variegation will fade.

  3. Water: Keep the soil slightly moist, allowing soil to dry out completely between waterings.

  4. Temperature: The Tradescantia thrives in temperatures 60-80 degrees, so it’ll do well in typical indoor temperatures.

    Shipping was super fast. The plant came in good condition however, the packaging was in pretty bad shape. I was surprised the plant was ok. Some of the leaves are damaged, but a lot of new growth coming through. Overall, I’m happy with my purchase.

    It was a lengthier process than i anticipated since my first order didn’t go so well but the shop owner was determined to make it right and sent me a replacement plant that arrived in perfect condition, making sure to package a little differently to help the plant during transit. Thank you so much!

    there was a slight issue with one of the ones I originally choose and the seller contacted me immediately and offered either a refund or a substitution. I accepted the substitution and couldn’t be happier. All 3 are healthy and beautiful. They were quick to ship and very well packaged.

    The seller was super gentle and disponible! He even sent me a plant gift! Perhaps for the hot time or for too much plastic packing some of the plants was partially rotten. Unfortunately this one had totally rotten roots, so I did cuttings, I hope to save the plant?? The seller offered me to have another for free with the next purchase

    It was smaller than I thought it would be. It was a bit floppy. I put it in a plastic freezer bag with moss and it bounced back.
