FAQ - 💬

❓ Is Hypoestes a good indoor plant?

❓ Should I let my polka dot plant flower?

👉 Polka dot plant flowers, 6-inch spikes of inconspicuous pink to purple blooms, generally appear in late summer or autumn after the days begin to shorten. However, this plant tends to “go to seed” after flowering—both literally and figuratively—so it's a good idea to keep pinching those buds off.

❓ Should I repot my polka dot plant?

👉 You do not need any special knowledge to repot a polka dot plant. Like most houseplants, they need repotting every one or two years to avoid becoming pot-bound. The best time to repot is in the early spring before its growing period.
