Tradescantia fluminensis Quicksilver, aka Inch Plant Quicksilver or Wandering Jew, is a creeping plant native to South America. It has attractive, pale green foliage striped with white and produces white, 3-petalled flowers. Its flowers unfold one at a time to preserve energy, usually in the morning, and will generally close with the afternoon sun.

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.

As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

Pro tips

While Tradescantia requires very little maintenance overall, pinching the stem tips will help them stay compact. Brighter light helps keep the plant healthy and avoids letting the plant become straggly.

Care Guide

How to take care of Tradescantia Fluminensis Quicksilver

They enjoy some direct sun, but they'll also do well in bright, indirect light. It is best to place this plant somewhere where it will receive some nice morning sun, or a couple hours of afternoon sun, and then indirect light the rest of the day.

They will thrive in medium to bright light, but also can tolerate low light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. They can be placed almost anywhere in the room but remember, plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

They need to be watered when the top half of the soil is dry to the touch. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you water again. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

They will do well in average humidity environments but will appreciate a little bit of humidity if provided, give them a mist daily or get a humidifier.

This plant is moderately toxic and can cause some adverse reactions when ingested so it is best to not let your pets eat it, which we advise for all plants in general. The severity of the reaction will depend on how much of the plant is ingested but, if you know your pet typically does not eat your plants, this plant will be suitable for your home.
