Product Information

If you're looking for magnificent foliage colour that really stands out in the garden, then look no further than the aptly named polka dot plant. A vibrantly coloured annual plant used to add colour and texture to your hanging basket and container displays, this is a must have addition to the garden and worthy of a place in any planting scheme.

With its striking-hued leaves the Polka Dot Plant is easy to grow and fabulous as a filler, brightening anywhere it's planted. Having won many awards internationally it's a guaranteed 'doer' and can be adapted as a houseplant too - so you don't even need a garden to appreciate its dazzling colours.

The HIPPO (R) series features larger leaves than traditional Hypoestes and are much more vigorous, meaning that they will fill out much more quickly for a faster display and its upright habit makes it ideal in containers.

*Design tip* plant with petunias for a super-designer look!

Care Information

  • Unpack plugs immediately and stand them in water for an hour.
  • If you canít do this, they can sit in their mini greenhouse for a week if upright and not too wet.
  • Plugs may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but theyíll quickly recover.
  • Put them somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • When potting on, handle plugs carefully. Pot on using our 9cm pots in Shuttle Trays, using good multi-purpose compost.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry. They donít like to be left in standing water.
  • When established, plant out approx. 20cm (8in) apart to allow them room to grow.
  • Feed using a high-potash feed such as Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser for Flowers & Fruits, to encourage flowering.
  • Dead head when flowers fade to encourage more flowers.
  • Remember that plants are frost tender and should be protected from frost at all times.
