If they are watered too often they will usually get crown rot, meaning the plant will die from the roots upward. We recommend watering your Pink Wandering Jew plant weekly during the summer, and less frequently in the cooler winter months.
What is the best soil for pink Wandering Jew Plants?
Wandering Jew Plants require a very well-draining soil. They also prefer their soil to be slightly dryer in between watering. Regular potting mix with sand works well for plants potted in containers.
