Tradescantia 'Nanouk' Description

The Tradescantia 'Nanouk', commonly referred to as the Fantasy Venice, is a vibrant and trendy cultivar of the Tradescantia genus. Known for its striking pink, green, and white variegated leaves, it stands out for its unique color palette and lush, trailing growth. This plant is highly praised not only for its decorative appeal but also for its rapid growth and ease of care. This plant is perfect for hanging baskets or as a striking tabletop display where its colorful foliage can spill over attractively.

Care Plan for Tradescantia 'Nanouk'

Light: Tradescantia 'Nanouk' thrives in bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some direct sunlight, but too much can cause the colors in the leaves to fade and the leaf margins to burn. If the light is too low, the vibrant leaf variegations may become less pronounced.

Watering: Water this plant when the top inch of soil feels dry. Tradescantia 'Nanouk' prefers consistent moisture but is quite forgiving if you occasionally forget to water. Overwatering should be avoided as it can lead to root rot. Ensure the pot has good drainage to prevent water from sitting at the bottom.

Humidity: While it can tolerate average household humidity, increasing the humidity can promote more vigorous growth and lusher foliage. Mist the plant regularly or use a humidifier if your indoor air is dry.

Temperature: Keep temperatures between 60-80°F (15-27°C). Tradescantia 'Nanouk' is not frost-tolerant and should be protected from extreme cold drafts.

Child and Pet Safety: Tradescantia plants are known to be toxic if ingested. They can cause irritation to the mouth, stomach, and skin in both pets and humans, so it's best to keep the plant out of reach of children and animals.

General Tips: Fertilize every month during the growing season with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted by half. Pinch back the stem tips regularly to encourage bushier growth and to prevent the plant from becoming too leggy. Removing old or yellowed leaves will help keep your plant healthy and attractive.
