With its vibrant colors and low-maintenance attitude, The Oyster Plant is a perfect gift for anyone. The leaves boast gorgeous green, pink, purple, and white stripes that grow upward into any space. Keep the colors bright by giving it indirect light, but it can handle lower-lit areas. Allow the soil to dry halfway between waterings and mist occasionally to prevent crispy dry leaves.

The Oyster Plant is a refreshingly bright-colored plant with green leaves that feature purple, pink, and white striping. The leaves are in a rosette pattern and grow upward rather than trail, which is unique for plants in the Tradescantia family. The Oyster Plant is easy to care for and adds a vivid touch of color to any collection.
The Oyster Plant is native to Southern Mexico and Central America. This plant can grow in low to indirect bright light. The more light this plant gets, the deeper the colors become. Water thoroughly when the soil is half dry and keep in a warm humid spot.Additional Resources:
