The Tradescantia zebrina compacta is an unique indoor plant due to its colourful leaves. On the inside the leaves are green-silvery with a purple edge. This makes this plant stand out clearly from other green indoor plants. The Tradescantia zebrina compacta has smaller leaves than the Tradescantia zebrina which makes it even more special. This is a very strong plant that can tolerate full sun; water it regularly.
This plant is originally from Colombia.
