Description How to Grow Delivery

Hypoestes phyllostachya is better known as the polka dot plant and it’s easy to see why. The vibrant red foliage is dotted and splashed with dark olive green, making a fabulous colour contrast. This tropical foliage plant has a spreading, bushy habit and makes a well-behaved houseplant – a fun and easy-to-grow option that’s perfect for beginners! For the best leaf colour, position polka dot plant in bright light, with protection from scorching hot sun. Height and spread: 30cm (12").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Please note: Some houseplants are toxic or harmful to pets if ingested. If you believe your pet has consumed a poisonous plant, seek veterinary attention immediately. Take a sample of the plant with you.
