Polka Dot Plant, aka Hypoestes Phyllostachya, is a lively and beautiful little plant with brightly spotted leaves that stand out especially well against other plants. The leaves come in vibrant pinks, reds, and whites, with spots that often merge into these larger areas of colour. With bright enough light, they remain small and compact, adding some colour to your home.

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.

As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

Pro tips

These plants do have a tendency to get leggy, so to promote a bushier growth habit, pinch back the top two leaves on each stem on a weekly basis. This also can help the plant to grow healthier and more vigorously. If your plant has become leggy, avoid pruning more than 1/3 of your plant at a time, as too much pruning can shock the plant.

Care Guide

How to take care of Polka Dot Plant

They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.

They will thrive in bright light, but also can tolerate medium light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. They can be placed anywhere between the middle of the room and the window. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

Allow the top quarter of the soil to dry before watering again. This usually takes about 3 - 4 days in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

They will do well in average humidity environments but will appreciate a little bit of humidity if provided, give them a mist daily or get a humidifier. They also prefer warmer temperatures, so try not to let them get too cold.

You can feel comfortable having this plant around your home in the potential case where your pet feels like nibbling on it. However, we typically recommend keeping your pets from eating any of your houseplants.
