Tradescantia Nanouk may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.
Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to keep it happy during this time of reduced sunlight intensity in Orlando, Florida ⛅.
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 Tradescantia Nanouk after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.

The growing potential in Orlando is low 📉.
Repotting in late fall or winter when the day lengths are shorter can be very stressful for a plant and cause it to go into shock.

What other plant parents say
This plant and I have been through it. It bloomed during the summer and stayed relatively healthy. But more recently has started showing some brown spots which I suspect are from over-misting so watch out for that. It’s also gotten a bit too leggy so I’ve cut its stems for propogation and I’ll put them back into the pot to keep a fuller look.
Love this plant! If you give it enough sunlight it will grow fast! My mistake was giving it too large of a pot at first and not enough sunlight, so it didn’t grow, and would get tiny brown spots on the leaves. Since giving more sunlight and trying my best not to overwater, it’s been growing great and looks beautiful. 😌
She’s a strong, confident but low maintenance plant that will thrive with bright direct or indirect sunlight – the brighter the light, the more vivid her coloring will be! She will need pretty frequent waterings because this girl gets thirsty!!! You’ll know that you have waited way too long to water when you see her start to droop or brown.
This is definitely one of my favorite plants in my collection! The color is an eye-catcher, and this plant is so easy to propagate! I currently have four cuttings that all have great root systems! It grows really fast as well. Only downside is the leaves brown easily, but I’m guessing humidity levels contribute to that.
