Tiny, three-petaled, lavender-purple flowers appear sporadically throughout the year on plants grown in the native habitat, but flowers rarely appear on indoor plants. It is also known as Zebrina Pendula.

This is one of the easiest houseplants to grow. This plant typically grow in moist, well-drained, and acidic soil. It does best in partial shade but does equally well in sunny area as long as the soil is kept moist. Wandering Jew plant is best suited for hanging containers, and it needs a location with plenty of indirect natural light.
Light- Wandering Jew plants do best in bright but indirect sun. Without enough light, the variegation of the leaves begins to fade. Too much sun, though, can cause the leaves to scorch.
Soil- This plant can well with ordinary potting soil if it is not over-watered, but prefers a soil that drains well. Mixing a small amount of sand into commercial potting soil is ideal.
Water- This plant does well if kept moist but not soggy. It should be watered weekly in the summer, less frequently in the winter.
Temperature and Humidity-Any of the species of wandering Jew plant will thrive at temperatures between 65 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit, but will also do fine in warmer temperatures. However, below 50 degrees Fahrenheit, the leaves may become discolored or damaged.
Fertilizer- The plant doesn't require much, if any, feeding. At most, use a water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength, applied bimonthly. More aggressive feeding can cause the plant's leaves to lose their variegation.
