Stripped foliage and a vigorous growth habit make the Pistachio White Tradescantia a sought-after plant. This Tradescantia 'Pistachio White' or inch plant features ovate foliage that comes to a point. The medium green leaves have random dark green and white stripes. The leaves densely grow on thick, reaching stems.

Tradescantia makes a beautiful ground cover, and the white accents brighten a shady bed or border. The stems will set roots as they grow and reach, allowing the plant to spread and quickly cover a large area. Add the Pistachio White Tradescantia to a mixed container as a spiller or put it in a hanging basket so the stems and variegated foliage can cascade. 

Pistachio White Tradescantia Care

Plant Pistachio White in partial sun to full shade. Some sunlight is necessary to maintain the vivid variegation, but too much will burn the leaves. Keep the soil moist and avoid overly dry conditions. Pistachio White Tradescantia is susceptible to root rot, so use loose, well-drained soil. Apply a slow-release fertilizer each spring. Use a product with increased nitrogen levels to promote leaf growth. 

Remove dead  damaged growth as it occurs. Long stems of a potted or hanging plant can become heavy and pull the roots from the soil, so trim length as needed. Tradescantia is easy to propagate using cuttings to create new plants. Move a landscape plant indoors before the weather turns cold and grow the Pistachio White Tradescantia as a houseplant during the winter.

Pistachio White Tradescantia Spacing

Pistachio White Tradescantia can grow 6 to 12 inches tall and reach 1 to 3 feet long. Space plants 1 to 3 feet apart, or use a 10-inch pot.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
