My mom just bought me this Wandering Jew today and it's very healty. I placed it on a hook on my bedroom door. I have looked all over the internet on how to care for this plant, but they all say different things. I found this site and I thought that since this is a University site the information here would be accurate. What I would like to know is this: How often do I water it? How much sunlight does it need? Where is the best place to keep this plant? Should I use a fertilizer? If so how often? How often should I trim the leaves? How do I trim the leaves? Does it need any special care? There are a few dead leaves, should I cut them off? I'm new to plants and the few I have kept before didn't last long. I would very much appreciate all the help I can get. Thanks for reading this. ~Edit~ I have a cat and a dog. Is this plant posionous to animals? If so which animals is it posionous to? Can Wandering Jews become damaged by insects or certain weather conditions?
