Wandering Jew, native to the Tropical Rain Forest, is an herbaceous groundcover that is not only beautiful, but fast and easy to grow. Wandering Jew is a trailing plant that makes a striking hanging basket or ground cover until frost. Foliage of the Wandering Jew grows to be several feet in length, which makes this plant a favorite for horticulture applications. Grow them as part of your summer program, as these vigorous foliage plants will still look great even in the heat of July and August.


Growing Tips

For best results with Wandering Jew, we recommend using a constant feed program of 150-200 ppm N. Maintain a pH between 5.5 - 6.0.

Pinching

Pinching is recommended 5-10 days after transplantation. A second pinch may be necessary depending on the size and shape of the final pot.

 

Spacing

Space pots adequately to allow for light penetration and airflow between foliage of adjacent pots. We recommend 6-8 inches for 4” pots and 18-24 inches for 10” pots.

Height Control

Pinching is the best way to control height. An initial pinch is recommended, but additional pinching may be necessary to shape your final product.

Pests

Spider mites are the primary pests attracted to Wandering Jew.

Disease

Combo Rhapsody are not prone to many diseases, but watch for botrytis while the days are short. This grey rot is usually associated with wet or humid conditions. You can prevent botrytis by allowing the plant to dry out between waterings, allowing for good airflow in your greenhouse, and spacing to allow the sun to penetrate to the soil level. The most common chemicals used to treat botrytis are Medallion and Banrot. Use them as a drench according to each label’s instructions.

Planting Combo Rhapsody Liners

  1. We recommend planting 6-8 starter plants per 10” basket. Use a well-drained soil in your baskets and plant your starter plants deep, allowing the ellepot to be completely covered by the soil. If you are planting 4” pots, 2-3 plants per pot should be sufficient if you have enough time. If using three starters, plant them in a triangle in the middle of your pot.
  2. Pinching is recommended 5-10 days after transplantation. A second pinch may be necessary depending on the size and shape of the final pot.

Rooted Cuttings

Cuttings vary in size between different plant families. These rooted starter plants will arrive ready to be transplanted in to your final container. If they are to be used in a landscape application, you will need to establish them in a 4 inch pot or an 1801 before planting outside.
