Hypoestes Phyllostachya, also commonly known as the White Splash or Polka Dot plant belonging to the Acanthaceae family, is native to South Africa, East Asia, and Madagascar. The Polka Dot Plant has many colorful variegations and the White Splash version has deep green foliage with white blotches, a very attractive and easy to grow houseplant. For the leaves to maintain their variegation, provide the polka dot plant with bright to medium sunlight. The White Splash or Freckle Face plant requires evenly moist conditions. Watering cycles can differ based on climate and sun exposure but a useful rule of thumb is to water the polka dot plant once ½ to ¼ inch of the topsoil has dried out. During the growing season, you can feed the plant with liquid fertilizer or compost for extra nutrients. As they age, the Polka dot plant tends to get leggy which can be easily fixed by providing the plant with adequate sunlight and pruning.

You can easily propagate the cuttings using the Lyfe Propagation Station - Single Tube Rose Gold. Due to the White Splash Polka Dot being a tropical plant it requires 70-80°F and a humid environment to thrive. We recommend misting your Hypoestes Phyllostachya plant several times a day.

Available in the following packaging based on your preference:

  • Nursery Pot 2" - Standard brown (terracotta look) plastic 2-inch planter pot that can be placed inside a larger pot or left as is until it outgrows it. 
  • Clive Planter - This plant comes packaged in a white square porcelain planter pot ready for your home or office space with a bamboo tray to catch drips when watered.

If your plant needs added humidity our Plant Mister would make a perfect addition to your plant shelf for both function and beauty.
