Hypoestes, also known as Polka Dot plant, is a popular indoor plant that belongs to the Acanthaceae family.

It is native to Madagascar and is characterized by its vibrant, spotted leaves that come in a variety of colors, including pink, red, white, and green.

The plant produces small white or pink flowers that are not particularly showy, but the colorful foliage makes up for it.

 

Care Instructions:

  • Hypoestes thrives in bright, indirect light but can also tolerate lower light conditions. Avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves.
  • The plant prefers evenly moist soil and should be watered when the top inch of soil is dry to the touch. Avoid overwatering as it can lead to root rot.
  • Hypoestes prefers well-draining soil and should be planted in a container with drainage holes to prevent waterlogging.
  • The plant benefits from occasional fertilization during the growing season with a balanced liquid fertilizer.
  • Hypoestes prefers moderate to high humidity levels, so consider misting the leaves regularly or placing a humidifier nearby.
