I'm destined for the desert, so keep my environment dry and mist free to keep me happy.


Nobody puts baby in a corner! I like to be in the spotlight and thrive on direct sunlight.


I don't need much water. If my soil is dry I'm thirsty and it's time to water me!

About Lil' Wandering Dude

Cowabunga dudes and dudettes! Here at Prickle, we are totally stoked to introduce to you our most excellent Lil' Prick yet - the Lil' Wandering Dude! This totally stellar hanging plant hales all the way from Central America and we are sure that its purple, green, and white foliage will 'leaf' you totally amazed. The Lil' Wandering Dude, or Tradescantia Zebrina when it isn't out catching waves, unsurprisingly, loves to chill in bright, direct sunlight - but don't go thinking it loves the heat too much as you never want your Pink Joy Zebrina reaching temperatures above 24°C.

If you are looking to get a whole crew together of lil' dudes and dudettes, simply take some cuttings, leave them to hang ten in some water, and get them their own pad once they reach 5 to 10 cm.

Our top tip for keeping your Lil' Wandering Dude looking absolutely killer is to make sure you keep your Zebrina well-trimmed as its fast-growing beach hair can sometimes get a little bit gnarly. If you also want to make sure its dreds are always looking on top form, put your Lil' Prick in diffuse light to really make its colourful foliage pop.

At Prickle, we are always here to hear you! Send us your Wandering Dude baby plant questions @prickleplantsuk.
