Hypoestes phyllostachya 'Polka dot plant - Tricolor'
Hypoestes is a popular freckled plant with splashes of red, pink, white, or some combination of the three. Each leaf is unique and that is a big part of their charm. Polka dot Plants bring instant color and cheer into your space, and are easy to care for and pet friendly! If you want to keep your Hypoestes really happy, make sure that it gets enough humidity, which you can do by putting it in a terrarium or misting the leaves regularly. The tricolor variety is extra fun, with a surprise on every leaf - some pink, some white, some green, and each leaf with it's own personality.
Light: Bright Filtered
Ease: Easy Breezy
Pet Friendly: Yes
Care: To prevent your Polka dot plant from getting leggy, you can regularly pinch off the top two leaves and this will result in a bushier plant. You can also pinch off any blooms to redirect energy to the rich leaf variegation.
