aka Hypoestes Phyllostachya

Height: 15cm
Nursery pot:
8cm
Pot in photo: Old Bronze 8x10cm (sold separately)

Light: This eyecatching little plant prefers a bright spot, east or west-facing windows would be best. Too much sun will scorch her leaves. 

Water: She likes to be continuously moist, but never soggy! Best to check on her weekly and give her a drink when 50% of her soil has dried out. She's also partial to the odd squirt with the mister every now and then. 

Food: Feed fortnightly during spring and summer, this will help her grow big and strong. She's known to reach heights of 60cm when mature. 

PM tip: She has a tendency to get leggy, so to promote bushier growth, pinch back the top two leaves on each stem on a weekly basis during spring and summer.
