A gorgeous plant but can get leggy with insufficient light however she’s super easy to propagate and giving some of the leggier stems a trim encourages lots of bushy growth so it’s win-win.
This thing roots from cuttings so fast and then it grows even faster. If there’s such a thing as instant gratification when it comes to growing from cuttings, this is it. I love it.
I like this plant because it’s color is very vibrant pink, but attracts a lot of gnats due to having to be watered frequently, but it is a fast grower.
I rescued this plant from near death due to shipping during hot summer weather. It’s now abundant and one of the happiest plants in my collection.
So easy to take care of. Easy to propagate. Very pink if you leave it in the sun and greener if you move it to low light.
Only a few weeks and the changes in new growth is visible! Loves my sunny window.

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Small-Leaf Spiderwort after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
