Wandering Jew plants like bright indirect light. The better the light, the more flowers and colorful leaves a Wandering Jew plant produces. Direct sun causes the purple and cream colors in the leaves to fade.
Water well and then allow the top 2″ to 3″ of soil to dry out before watering again. If the soil of a Wandering Jew plant stays too dry and the plant is in bright light, the leaves become stunted and lose color. Over watering causes root rot.
Feed monthly when a Wandering Jew plant is producing new growth with a water-soluble houseplant food diluted to 1/2 the recommended strength. Using a plant food high in nitrogen helps a Wandering Jew plant produce more colorful leaves. Over- fertilizing is another reason why the bright colors in the leaves start to fade.
A Wandering Jew plant grows well in temperatures between 60°- 80°F (15.6°- 26.7°C).
Average to higher household humidity is best. If the air is too dry, the leaf tips of a Wandering Jew plant turn brown. Place a Wandering Jew plant on a tray of wet pebbles to increase the humidity around it. Be sure the plant is sitting on the pebbles and not in the water.
