The polka dot plant is a lively and beautiful little plant with brightly spotted leaves that stand out especially well against other plants.
The most common polka dot plant on the market is the pink polka dot, but in recent years growers have introduced new varieties in colors such as white or red. They've also developed plants with deeper colors and brighter contrast, so your plants will pop even more.
Light: Bright light is best. Plants grown in poor light conditions are likely to have solid green leaves, which defeats the purpose of this neat little plant. If your plant isn't colourful enough, consider some direct sunlight, which should deepen the colours
Water: Keep the soil moist in the summer growing season and reduce in the winter. If your plant flowers and then goes into a dormant phase, then reduce water significantly, resuming regular watering only after the new growth emerges.
Fertiliser: During the growing season, feed weekly with a weak liquid fertiliser that includes micronutrients and encourages blooming.
Soil: A light, fast-draining potting soil is perfect. You can use fortified soils.
