Description
Hypoestes phyllostachya is better known as the Polka Dot plant and it’s easy to see why. The colourful pink foliage is dotted and splashed with dark olive green making a fabulous colour contrast. This tropical foliage plant has a spreading, bushy habit and makes a well behaved house plant. A fun and easy to grow plant that’s perfect for beginners! For the best leaf colour, position it in bright light, with protection from scorching hot sun. Height and spread: 30cm (12").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Please note: Some houseplants are toxic or harmful to pets if ingested. If you believe your pet has consumed a poisonous plant then seek veterinary attention immediately. Take a sample of the plant with you.

How to Grow
Grow Hypoestes in bright, filtered light, with protection from scorching sun. Low light levels can cause the foliage to revert to green so filtered light from a south or west facing window is preferable. This plant enjoys normal room temperatures of 18C (65F) - 24C (75F), and moderate humidity.
More Info
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season to maintain reliably moist soil. Take care to drain plants well after each watering. Reduce watering in winter, allowing the soil to dry out slightly between each watering. Keep Polka Dot plants neat and compact by pinching out the growing tips of the longest stems.
