About Polka Dot Plant
Plant growers enjoy these plants because they are pretty and come in varying foliage colors. These beauties filter the air, and their lovely aesthetics are sure to brighten your mood.
With a moderate growth rate, the polka dots stay small when kept as indoor plants. They are also flowering plants as if they are not pretty enough with their polka dot leaves.
Polka dot plants are herbaceous perennials. This means their roots remain alive and produce new growth each year, while the plant part dies back to the ground. When grown as a houseplant, polka dot plants survive year-round, simply going dormant and not producing new growth during the winter.
The polka dot plant originates from Madagascar, South Africa.
Polka dot houseplants often have red, pink, or white leaves with green spots. Interestingly, they can also appear to have green leaves with different colored leaf spotting. They grow in low-mound foliage and can be displayed alone or with other plants. They are sporadic bloomers with beautiful, small flowers.
