Hypoestes

Placement

Lighting Requirements

Hypoestes require bright, indirect light. Sunlight helps increase the saturation of the Hypoestes' polka dots.

Placement

Watering Needs

Keep your plant consistently moist but not damp. Hypoestes need a well-draining soil to avoid getting root rot from the constant moisture.

Placement

Humidity

These plants prefer high-humidity environments. Occasionally mist your Hypoestes, wipe down the leaves with a damp cloth, or keep it in a humid location such as the bathroom or kitchen.

Placement

Temperature Preferences

Hypoestes prefer to be in a typical household temperature range, from roughly 65 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

Placement

Fertilizer

As fairly heavy feeders, Hypoestes require fertilization once a month with a standard houseplant fertilizer.

Placement

Pet-Friendly

Yes, they are considered non-toxic for cats and dogs!

Placement

Extra Care

These are fast growing plants, to keep it from getting leggy, prune your plant every couple weeks by pinching off the top couple leaves of each stem. This will encourage bushier growth.
