Houseplant & Indoor Plant Care

Wandering Dude Quadricolour Care Guide

Tradescantias benefit from a regular pruning to encourage a full and bodied plant. Enjoys partial sun but copes well in lower light spots. Prefers a more consistent temperature, therefore it is best to avoid positioning in a draughty hallway. Water well and thoroughly during the active growing season, reducing water in the winter when the plants growth slows down.

Collapsible content

What is the Wandering Dude Quadricolour Known For?

The Wandering Dude Quadricolour, scientifically known as Tradescantia Fluminensis, is a show-stopper with its striking multicoloured leaves. The hues of pink, white, green, and purple create an eye-catching display that can brighten up any living space. The plant's trailing nature makes it a perfect choice for hanging baskets or as a stunning ground cover.

What Is the History of the Wandering Dude Quadricolour?

The genus Tradescantia was named in honour of John Tradescant, a 17th-century English naturalist and gardener. The Fluminensis species is native to South America but has been cultivated in various parts of the world for its ornamental appeal. The Quadricolour variant is a cultivar celebrated for its intricate colouration and versatility in interior design.

Where Does the Wandering Dude Quadricolour Originate?

The original species, Tradescantia Fluminensis, hails from South America, particularly the regions around Brazil and Argentina. Its natural habitat consists of subtropical and tropical forests, which gives you an idea of the plant's preferred growing conditions—humid and warm, but out of direct sunlight.

How Do You Care for a Wandering Dude Quadricolour?

To keep your Wandering Dude Quadricolour vibrant and healthy, place it in bright, indirect light. Too much direct sunlight can fade its colourful leaves. It prefers moist but well-draining soil, so water it when the top layer of soil begins to dry out. High humidity is appreciated, so consider misting the plant or placing it on a pebble tray filled with water.

Are Wandering Dude Quadricolour Toxic to Pets?

It's important to note that the Wandering Dude Quadricolour is not pet-safe. If ingested, it can cause mild to moderate symptoms of poisoning in pets such as vomiting, salivation, or, in rare cases, skin irritation. Always place the plant out of reach if you have pets in your home.

    Charles was amazing and supportive in helping me out with my order, as it was a birthday present and I had added the wrong address at first so we lost the first plant on the way - but Charles was always super responsive and understanding, sent a replacement to my address on time for the birthday and we received our Prayer Plant safe and sound and on time! I can definitely tell that Charles loves plants as much as we do :) I definitely recommend!! Anna
