moses-in-a-boat – tradescantia spathacea

1 Feb

moses 008This plant ‘blooms’ sporadically through the year and has recently been adding blossoms (look like little boats, purple on the outside, green inside), although in several cases the little “Moses” inside have turned brown  before the flowers are fully opened. moses 015 The plant itself has gotten very leggy, which could be a sign I let it dry out too much between waterings.  This is supposed to be one of those “anyone can grow this — it’s practically a weed” plants, so I guess I have no good excuse for the sad condition of mine.  Any thoughts?
