The Lone Wanderer

It is said that the Wandering Dude gets its name from a Christian myth of the Wandering Jew. Condemned to wander the earth for eternity, the Wandering Jew, like the plant, will eventually travel everywhere around the world.

An Excellent Grower

Wandering Dudes are great indoor and outdoor plants. In some countries, when grown outside they grow so well they’re actually considered an invasive plant! These traits make them excellent indoor plants. You can also grow them outdoors, but be careful - if not properly maintained, they can easily become invasive to your beloved garden.

Where is it from?

Tradescantias are found typically in the Americas, from Canada to Northern Argentina, as well as the West Indies. In the wild, they can be found growing individually or in clumps in open fields and woody areas. 

How to Care for the Wandering Dude

Light: Place in bright to medium light with no direct sun. More light will give you more of that eye-catching bubble gum pink we all love!
Water: Allow the top 5 cm of the soil to dry before watering. They can survive if you forget to water them here and there.
Soil: Use a 50/50 ratio of draining materials and high organic soil.
Propagation: Wandering Dudes are the best for propagating! Take stem cuttings and place in moist soil. You can also place in a jar of water, but they take in soil very well.
Repotting: These plants are excellent growers. Check to see if your plant needs repotting every 12-18 months, or when the roots start to grow out of the pot’s holes. Increase pot size by 5 cm each time you repot.

Is the Wandering Dude ‘Bubble Gum’ for me?

Whatever life has to throw at it, this bright and cheery plant just keeps on growing! The Tradescantia family are famously known for their ability to spread like wildfire, and being tolerant of prolonged bouts of neglect. The ‘Bubble Gum’ variety is a must-have plant for all plant lovers, and with their gorgeous bright pink hues, it’s bound to become a new favourite!

Common Problems and Questions

How do I stop my Wandering Dude from growing long and leggy? 

If you want a more compact, fuller-looking plant, prune regularly and remove broken or damaged stems. You can place them back in the soil to root, which will eventually become another plant! 

How quick does my plant grow?

Wandering Dudes grow very fast in warm temperatures, and have been seen to grow as much as an inch per week in growing seasons! Of course, good light levels and watering requirements must be met to help them grow quickly.

Why are my leaves turning green?

Variegated plants can start turning green because of a lack of light. Over-watering can also turn your plant yellow but the most common reason is low light levels. Move your plant to a bright spot and watch it flourish!

We can ship to anywhere within Canada. However, it may take longer for you to receive your products if you live in a remote region, such as the Eastern Provinces, especially as we ship from BC.

Please allow up to five business days for your plant to be delivered. If you live in one of the Eastern Provinces, this may take slightly longer, typically around seven business days.

Please also note that tax rates vary dependent on province. These too will be calculated at checkout to comply with provincial laws.

If your item is found to be defective or damaged, you will be entitled to a full refund. In many cases, we will not require the item be delivered back to us, however, in some circumstances we may request that this it is. If this is the case, our customer service team will gladly help you through this process.

You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).
