The perfect plant for terrariums and tiny tabletop displays, polkadot hypoestes are supercute and festively freckled in pastel shades.  This one is a warm blush red with darkest green freckling along the ribs.

Planted outside in a shady tropical garden they can sprawl and spread, but inside you can keep them small and contained, to enjoy them up close.

Hypoestes phyllostachya 'Splash Select Red' - polka dot plant
APPEARANCE : Bushy, sprawling small tropical evergreen with patterned oval-shaped red leaves splashed in green.
USE FOR: Ideal container plant for a shaded patio or indoors in a well lit room. Suited to underplanting in tropical style gardens. In gardens that experience frost they make excellent seasonal colourful bedding.  
PLANTING: Plant in a shady spot with indirect sunlight and regular irrigation. Prefers free draining soil or a good quality potting mix; humid air; and some shade to maintain strong leaf colour.
CARE: Water regularly during the first 12 weeks and only if soil seems dry once established. Apply a slow release fertiliser yearly and liquid feed every three months for loads of vibrant foliage. Remove old leaves for a quick tidy up - wash hands afterwards as sap can be irritating to some skins. Give leggy plants more light, or pinch out the growing tips to encourage bushiness - see our blog on How to Tip Prune for more on this.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 40cm H x 40cm W.
YOUR PLANTS : These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide.
