Hypoestes Phyllostachya Red is a colourful, bushy, baby houseplant which is also known as the Polka Dot Plant. It gets this name from its brightly patterned leaves which have a crimson red base covered in dark green spots and veining, creating a polka dot effect.
Place your Polka Dot Plant in bright, indirect light. It will require regular watering throughout the summer months, and less frequent water during the winter months. It will also benefit from a regular misting or being placed in a humid room such as the bathroom or kitchen every so often.
Baby plants are excellent for anyone with smaller spaces to fill, and they make the perfect gift plant too! The Polka Dot Plant is an ideal choice for anyone looking to add a splash of colour to their houseplant collection.
It’s not unusual to give your plant a name… so don’t hesitate to choose one that you think suits the plant! Try naming your plant with the first name or word that you think of when you look at it - that’s how we ended up with an orchid named Clover and spider plant called Joseph.
