Rhoeo Spathacea or plant moses-in-the-cradle, or moses-in-a-basket is a popular house plant, related to the Wandering Jew plant. You'll find that it's just as easy to grow. Dark-green, lance-shaped leaves with purplish-red undersides make this a beautiful house plant year-round. 


Let the sun shine in. Grow your plant in bright light year-round for good foliage color and flowers. It will tolerate lower light, but the leaves will be more green than purple.


Raise the humidity in winter by misting the foliage with tepid water daily, or using a humidifier. Place the pot on a tray of wet pebbles to keep the air moist around it.

Repot in spring when the plant becomes crowded, probably every couple years. Move up to a pot only 1 size larger to give it a little room to grow. Use a pot with drainage holes to prevent soggy soil, which leads to root rot.


*Concrete planter pot is not included.
