Polka Dot Plant Care

Hypoestes Phyllostachya, also know as the polka dot plant, are eye catching plants with bright colors that come in different shades of pink, green, and red. They have the most adorable little spots!


Polka dot plants are native to Madagascar and easy care. They communicate their need for water by drooping, making them great for beginners or those who need plants to speak up when they need something. They can be a little dramatic though when thirsty so don't freak out if you go to bed with a perky plant and wake up to a seemingly dead plant. Give it some water and you can literally watch it spring back to life. Polka dot plants are also good for those who like to fuss with their plants as they need semi-regular pruning.
