Pink Panther Wandering Jew (Tradescantia Callisia repens ‘Pink Panther’)

Pink Panther Wandering Jew

Oh so cute! The Pink Panther Wandering Jew ((Tradescantia) Callisia repens ‘Pink Panther’) features tri-color, tiny foliage on brilliantly colored, easy-care houseplants!

Pinkish, sometimes green-gray stems sprout bright pink and light pink streaks. Splashed over soft green leaves with white variegation. Sending out long stems with alternating foliage on a short, compact and spreading little gem of a dwarf-sized tropical plant!

Sometimes known as an Inch Plant because of how it grows, or the Bolivian Wandering Jew, Callisia are succulent gems for use in terrariums, containers and hanging baskets. Slowly trailing or creeping, these make fantastic fillers and spillers for pots and as ground cover around larger trees and shrubs in moist, humid locations.

Planting and Application:

Plant this pink Wandering Jew in containers, patio pots, window boxes outdoors, where you can treat Pink Panther plants just as you would their larger Purple Wandering Jew cousins – as an annual or bring it in once the weather turns chilly and use it as a brilliantly colored house plant!

Indoors, any place with ample humidity, or in moist soil pots and containers, works great for these brightly colored beauties! Terrariums and hanging baskets highlight these lovelies, while a more utilitarian use using the Wandering Jews as a groundcover over larger houseplants soil to act as ornamental living mulch!

  • Slower growing creeper that spreads and roots as it grows or as a trailing hanging plant!
  • Houseplant year round or can be used as an annual thriller and spiller.
  • Outdoors in all kinds of applications throughout USDA 10 and 11.
  • Prefers bright, indirect light, humidity and moisture.
  • A tropical plant that’s native to the Americas.

Tips for Care:

Wandering Jew care is relatively easy! Readily rooting itself, Wandering Jew Plants spread when the stems touch the soil, so just nip these stems off and tuck them into the soil with the main stems for a fuller plant!

  • Provide Callisia part sun or partial shade, preferring bright light that’s filtered and indirect. Poor lighting will cause them to become leggy.
  • Plant in enriched, moist soil that won’t become soggy. Providing good drainage holes for your plant when in containers.
  • Don’t be too eager to repot your plants, Wandering Jew Plants tend to do great when somewhat root-bound.
  • Pinch off longer stems to encourage branching and fullness.
  • Fertilize anywhere from 2-3 times a year to monthly depending on the fertilizer being used.
