Purple Heart, Purple Queen, Purple Secretia, Tradescantia pallida 'Purpurea' - 4" pot: $5, 6" pot: $10, 8" pot: $15

Rooted plants grown with love in Dayton, Oh, with my organic homemade fermented Fish Amino Acid (FAA), a Korean Natural Farming supplement abundant in amino acids, nutrients to enhance plant growth and populations of beneficial micro-organisms in the soil. Pesticide free.

Purple Secretia, Purple Heart, Purple Queen, Tradescantia pallida 'Purpurea' - This popular trailing house plant is about 18 inches tall, has 2-5" long, narrow pointed purple leaves covered in soft pale hairs, arranged alternately along thick herbaceous segmented stems. Summer blooms pop from the tips of the branches, with a three petaled purple-pink flower and yellow stamens.

Not winter hardy here, but a great house plant that can be outside April-October if no hard frost. Best in filtered sun, direct sun with afternoon shade, or in shade. Leaf color varies with amount of sun and water from green to purple, with the best color in the brightest light. Water regularly during the growing season, reduce watering over winter. Exceptionally effective at phytoremediation, improving indoor air quality by filtering out volatile organic compounds, a class of common pollutants and respiratory irritants.

Plant juices may cause cause a rash or blisters on sensitive skin.
