Rhoeo spathacea is the synonym of Tradescantia spathacea. Moses in the Cradle is a rather succulent herb with a dense cluster of sturdy sword-shaped leaves arising from a trunklike stem. The leaves are a dark teal-tinged forest green on top and vivid violet underneath.

The small white three-petaled flowers are hidden in boat-shaped purple bracts nestled in the leaf axils. Flowers and seed are produced all year. Probably, the boat-shaped bracts with a small white flower in the middle look like an eye.

    Rhoeo spathacea can be propagated by seeds, cuttings, or division. In most areas, Rhoeo is considered an annual, though, in fact, it is a tender perennial. This means that it can only tolerate temperatures down to about -6 degree Celsius before they are killed off.

    Keep in mind that this is the temperature that will kill them. Overwatering should be prevented when only when the soil feels dry to touch. Proper drainage facilities should be provided to the plant otherwise the roots rot.
