Tradescantia fluminensis

By now, it may sound like a broken record of me repeating myself over and over again concerning a Callisia species in comparison with a Tradescantia and Spiderwort and their Growth and Care requirements.

I just wanted to make mentioned the variations and different types available and unique characteristics of this particular plant species.

I thought this one had morphed into all green due to lack of sunlight but I was wrong when I had closely inspected it and found that this is actually Tradescantia fluminensis but ditched all it's unstable variegation format.

I also found that this one is a slow grower in comparison to Callisia repens. I grew them together to give that color mix where the  dark stem seemed to be give a nice feature. I also find that the leaves seemed to have center folded crest. It does have a fragile appearance but able to handle direct sun and rain unlike the sensitive counterpart.

 I'm pretty sure there are many more types and varieties of this kind but I prefer to just cultivate this few. I had recently introduced one particular type and it had gone extremely invasive and wild and I was forced to get rid of it as it started to choke on other plants.
