Native to Madagascar, Hypoestes phyllostachya is a classic tropical houseplant that is best known for its brightly variegated foliage that resembles polka dots.
Pot & Plant Size: D6cm H11cm
Light: Your Hypoestes prefers bright, indirect light. Lower light can cause it to grow slower and become stretched out while direct sunlight can burn the leaves.
Water: Maintain a slightly moist soil level. Water thoroughly when top inch of soil is dry. Like the Fittonia, It will let you know with limp leaves. After a good watering the leaves should soon perk up!
Feed: Feed every month from spring through the end of summer with an organic fertiliser diluted to half the recommended strength.
Toxicity: Hypoestes are non-toxic!
