Houseplant of the week: four-coloured silver inch plant
With silver, pink, green and red stripes on succulent-like leaves, this fast-growing plant is easy to propagate
Why will I love it?
It’s a fast-growing trailing plant in millennial pink. Its cultivar name, Tradescantia fluminensis quadricolor, means “four colours”, for its beautiful, variegated leaves, striped in green, silver, pale pink and red. Not only can it grow up to an inch a day, but you only need an inch of it to grow a new plant (hence its common name). So that’s a few birthday presents sorted.
Light or shade?
Bright indirect light.
