You'll find it hard to stop this one from growing! 

The Wandering Dude is a hugely popular plant due to its extremely easy-going nature and colourful foliage of silver, purple and green, which will trail or hang, as you wish. The name, Wandering Dude, is derived from its propensity ability to root and thrive in different environments. So, you still think we need to convince you? This plant is beautiful, it’s convenient, it’s flexible, it’s forgiving! If you’re not at home a lot or you are just a bit forgetful, not a problem! The Wandering Dude is happy to take a break in between waterings and will flourish the next time you give them some hydration.

  • This super-fast grower looks best left trailing from a shelf or in a hanging pot
  • Also known as the Inch plant, it has unusual green, silver and purple leaves which are almost pearlescent
  • Likes bright, indirect light and slightly moist soil
  • Fun Fact: The name 'Zebrina' comes from its zebra-like leaves
  • Studies show that fractal patterns like the ones on the Wandering Dude trigger our 'alpha' response; a relaxed, yet wakeful state; so it can help us improve our creative thinking and productivity at work
  • The most frequently used common name is actually 'Wandering Jew,' stemming from the plant's ability to adapt and thrive in any environment; we've gone for an alternative name, used in some (more conscientious) plant communities
A beautiful and easy-going plant that will bring you many benefits! Get your Wandering Dude today!
