Purple Heart (Tradescantia Pallida) is named because of its purple stems that grow beautiful blooms that range from violet to pink. However, despite its unique blooms, many gardeners choose this plant for its foliage, which is particularly vibrant. Both the stems and upper surfaces of the leaves appear to be deep royal purple, but may also contain lighter shades of turquoise-gray that become darker as the foliage grows older. A plant will bloom with three-petaled pink flowers in small clusters throughout the warm season. Plant Size Small: 4 inch standard nursery pot.  Light Planting your purple hearts in full sun can help ensure that they grow the boldest and vibrant purple stems. The plant can also grow in partial shade, but its stem is more likely to appear green than purple.It's best to introduce these plants to brighter conditions over time, however, as too much direct sunlight all at once can lead to foliage burn. Water Purple Heart is considered to be drought-tolerant, and it will not require a great deal of watering. For best growth, however, it is best not to let the plant sit dry for long periods.Aim to water the plant when the top layer of soil feels dry to the touch. You'll also want to stick to watering it during its blooming season. Keep in mind that younger plants will require more moisture than adults, and they should generally be watered at least weekly. Plant Specific Care SoilThey will grow best in soil that's lightweight, porous, and moist. Though most commercial potting mixes will work just fine, the soil should ideally include peat moss, perlite, and compost.  Temperature and HumidityThey can survive in an array of temperatures, but it's susceptible to frost. The average household humidity of 40 to 50 percent creates an ideal growing condition for the plant. If your house has drier air, a humidifier can help, as can placing your plant in a bathroom or kitchen. Dry air will impact the leaves, rendering them limp. Pet-Friendly Plant No.
