    The Polka Dot plant is an eye-catching little plant with brightly spotted leaves that stand out against most other foliage.

    Polka dot plants are easy to grow and can be grown in containers and as houseplants. They’re best planted in the spring, they have a moderate growth rate, and they remain relatively small once they’re mature, especially when grown indoors!

Polka dot plant forms a relatively low mound of foliage that looks good by itself or outstanding when mixed with other plants such as calathea that have fun foliage.

    Get the most from polka dot plant’s bright color by growing it a pot that contrasts or complements the colorful foliage. And try mixing polka-dot plant varieties for a fun look; red and white varieties, for example, are fun for the holidays.
