The Tradescantia zebrina 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. This plant is also very hardy and can tolerate full sun; water it regularly.
This plant is originally from Colombia.
