About Ohio Spiderwort
Tradescantia ohiensis 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. ❄️

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 Ohio Spiderwort after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
my spiderwort started with tall leaves and little purple flowers but after moving it outside, it dried out a lot. I repotted it and many of the original leaves and stems fell off and it stopped producing flowers. Then i changed its location and it has been thriving since. My plant struggled a lot but these boys are strong and can deal with a lot.
