Cobweb Spiderwort or Tradescantia sillamontana 'White Velvet', is a low growing perennial groundcover plant that is native to dry regions in Mexico.  Outdoors this easy to grow plant prefers partial shade but will tolerate full sun with good soil moisture.  When located in an area that received full sun in the heat of the day, the leaves can burn.

Indoors give them plenty of bright light, 2-3 hours of direct sun is fine. They work wonderfully in hanging baskets.  Allow the soil to dry somewhat between watering.  Overwatering, as well too much shade and excessive nitrogen can cause the plant to take on an unattractive appearance.  After flowering, cutting back the plant will promote a second bloom, as well as preventing self-seeding.
