We can’t get enough of this colorful little guy! The Polka Dot Plant is another #VerdeTribe favorite because of its colorful pink, and white spotted foliage. This plant is the perfect way to bring a pop of color to liven up your urban jungle.
Light: Bright indirect light to medium light (leaves may lose color if the light is too low). Keep in a warm place. Cold drafts will shock the plant.
Water: Allow the soil to dry out between waterings. Stick your finger about an inch or two into the soil, if the soil feels dry--it’s time to water. If the soil feels wet, don’t water.
Humidity: Grows best in high humidity. Set pot on a tray of wet pebbles or use a room humidifier. Mist leaves frequently with room-temperature water. Misting the leaves daily during summer is also advised.
