Tradescantia Nanouk is a beautiful trailing plant with white, green, and purple foliage. Rare Nanouk Lilac Leaf Plant also known as  Spiderwort, Inch Plant, Fantasy Venice, Wandering Jew is very popular among plant lovers. Tradescantia Nanouk does well in bright, indirect sunlight or full sun. Tradescantia plants are native to Central America, Mexico, and South America, but the Pink Nanouk originated in Sappemeer, The Netherlands, grown by cross-pollinating two selected seedlings of Tradescantia albiflora. Also known as Fantasy Venice, this trending plant features bright green, pink & purple, fuzzy-ish leaves growing on chunky stems. Despite its beauty, it’s not a difficult plant to look after, which makes it a great choice for beginners! A fast grower, the Pink Nanouk will begin to trail as it grows, making it a stunning addition to a shelf or trailing pot. We recommend giving it a prune every now and then to prevent leggy stems (particularly in winter), and to promote bushier growth. Simply place your cuttings back into the plant's soil and they'll start rooting.
