Tradescantia zebrina is a fast growing species of the Spiderwort family. Frequently used in Dart Frog vivariums, it grows well in damp conditions, and is easy to grow as a climber or ground cover. The patterning and colour of the leaves makes it a great focal point, and useful for brightening up sparse corners of tropical vivaria.
