4″ Tradescantia Navicularis

Callisia navicularis is a species of flowering plant in the family Commelinaceae. It has gained the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit as a warm temperate greenhouse ornamental.

Callisia is related to the Tradescantia family. It is a straggly, cascading, low-growing plant bearing a multitude of small green, fleshy leaves. In late autumn/winter, as watering slows down or ceases, the leaves become deep purple.

Often grown as a houseplant in temperate climates as it is a native of tropical origin. They need a light shaded or bright room but not in direct sunshine. ‘Chain Plant’ has lilac to magenta flowers in Summer – the flowers last just one day, opening in the morning, and closing in the afternoon.

Watering is easy with the Chain Plant, check when soil is dry and water from the bottom allowing plant to absorb the needed amount, draining any additional water left over.

The blue ceramic pot is a beautiful upgrade for the purple punch.
