Inch plant care requires bright, indirect light. If the light is too dim, the distinctive leaf markings will fade. Keep the soil slightly moist, but don’t water directly into the crown as this will cause an unsightly rot. Care should be taken, particularly in winter, that the plant doesn’t become too dry.
Also, is a Wandering Jew an indoor or outdoor plant?
The Wandering Jew is not a single plant — it’s the name given to a few different plants in the genus Tradescantia. When grown outdoors it’s considered invasive in many regions of the world, but those same growing characteristics make it perfect as an indoor vining plant.
Keeping this in view, how often should I water my wandering Jew?
The wandering Jew’s soil should be partially dried out between waterings. Totally dry soil is damaging, as is very wet soil. The Old Farmer’s Almanac recommends cutting back on watering during the winter months when the plant enters dormancy. Twice-monthly spring and summer additions of fertilizer are recommended.
