Included: Polka Dot Plant, 4” nursery pot, care instructions
Size: will shipped in a 4 inch nursery pot
Plant Difficulty: Easy.
Light Exposure: Bright, indirect light. Ideally a spot within a room without direct sunlight is best. Too much light or too little light causes the colors in the leaves of this plant to fade.
Watering: In summer months, always try to keep the soil moist (not waterlogged) and water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry. Over-watering causes root rot. If the leaves of a Polka Dot droop, they quickly perk up after a little water. Polka Dot Plant grows best in high humidity
