This compact series of Polka Dot plants has attractive pointy leaves which are white in colour with distinctive dark green spots. Heat and shade tolerant, they do best in average to evenly moist soil, but will not tolerate standing water as it will lead to root rot. The surface of the soil should not be allowed to dry out completely. Pinch tips to promote bushiness. They are perfect planted as annuals in gardens, mixed planters and hanging baskets. Polka Dot plants can also be used in terrariums and as indoor lifestyle plants.
