About Baby Bunny Bellies

Tradescantia chrysophylla is an exceptionally easy plant to care for and might surprise you with some of their delightful blossoms. They are extremely easy to propagate by stem and one plant can give rise to dozens of new ones, which makes them great for sharing. 🤝 As houseplants they often trail, but will also creep along the ground if grown outdoors. Their succulent leaves make them sensitive to frost, so be sure to bring them indoors if your winter temperatures dip below freezing. ❄️

BBB have fuzzy green & purple leaves that are generally smaller than wandering dude. They like bright, indirect light to full light. It grows quickly and likes to dry out between waterings (not too long, or the leaves will crisp). Bottom-watering helps preserve the fuzzy nature of the leaves. Looks great hanging or on a shelf - trails beautifully.

They can flower.

VERY easy. Fast grower. Can start to look a little leggy because of how fast it grows so you just want to chop and prop and fill the pot back in. Can prop in water or just stick right back in the dirt!
