Description

Rhoeo spathacea is the synonym of Tradescantia spathacea. Moses in the Cradle is a rather succulent herb with a dense cluster of sturdy sword-shaped leaves arising from a trunklike stem. The leaves are a dark teal-tinged forest green on top and vivid violet underneath. The small white three-petaled flowers are hidden in boat-shaped purple bracts nestled in the leaf axils. Flowers and seeds are produced all year. Probably, the boat-shaped bracts with a small white flower in the middle look like an eye. Water the tricolor rhoeo once per week. Water slowly and deeply down through the roots. In the first growing season, it is especially important to maintain a consistent watering schedule to ensure a strong, healthy root system. Proper drainage facilities should be provided to the plant otherwise the roots rot. It needs well-drained soil rich in organic matter. It grows best in full-to-partial sunlight, though it also flourishes under bright interior lights
