  • Tradescantia Nanouk, also known as Fantasy Venice, is a special type of spiderwort plant. Unlike other Trandescantias, Nanouk is a patented plant, developed in the Netherlands in 2012. This plant is incredibly beautiful with lush pink-purple leaves and green stripe variegation. The underside of the leaves is pinkish purple and the stems are dark purple. The unique patterns of its foliage make Nanouk stand out from other houseplants.

    Philodendron Red Congo’ is a hybrid cultivar, created from Philodendron ‘Imperial Red’ and another unspecified philodendron. This plant can grow up to 3-4 feet indoors.

    Nanouk is a specific patented cultivar of Tradescantia albiflora, designed with the purpose to create a more vigorous, hardy, colorful Tradescantia cultivar. With its gorgeous foliage, Nanouk has become one of the most trendy, sought-after plants for houseplant lovers.

    Tradescantia Nanouk usually grows up to a height and width of under 3.5 inches. Its compact size makes it a perfect tabletop plant for any home and office.

    In spring and summer, Nanouk produces tiny pink buds and creamy white flowers.
  • Tradescantia Nanouk needs plenty of bright, indirect sunlight to maintain its variegation. Low light will make its color fade. However, it does not tolerate direct harsh sunlight, which would burn its leaves.

    Tradescantia Nanouk needs watering about once a week or whenever the top 1" of the soil is dry. Drain well to avoid excess water retained in the soil.

    Nanouk prefers well-drained porous potting soil. It is recommended that you mix some perlite with general houseplant soil to imrpove drainage.

    Tradescantia Nanouk prefers daytime temperatures up to 75 °F , with night temperatures ideally in around 50°F-55°F. Nanouk likes humid environment, but its thick leaves help it to grows well in normal indoor humidity . Nanouk thrives in humidity levels ranging from 40% to 80%.

    This plant should be fertilized once during the growing season (spring/summer) with diluted houseplant fertilizer.

    This plant is toxic if ingested, so keep it out of reach of pets and children.

    When you purchase online, your plants have to go through lots of stress while traveling so they may need a few days to adjust to their new environment and thrive. If your plant does not perk back up after a few days of care, let us know and we will send replacements free of charge. Remember that we always try our best to accommodate you.
  • It’s advised that you should repot the plant as soon as you get it. After repotting, your new houseplant will most likely struggle with transplant shock. It may appear droopy, faded, or have a slower growth rate than usual during this time. This is completely normal, and it’s also normal for transplant shock to hit especially hard after repotting a brand-new houseplant. To make sure your plant has plenty of time to adjust to its new surroundings, wait a day after potting and water your plant. Make sure any excess water drains completely from the pot afterward. Monitor your soil’s moisture levels daily to start creating a watering routine. To help perk up your new houseplant, we recommend adding a little water-soluble fertilizer, compost, or sugar water to your soil to boost its nutrients and help it grow.
