Polka Dot Plant

Polka Dot Plant (Hypoestes phyllostachya)

It had started up around the base again so I trimmed off the flower finishing ends and wait to see if it just cycles through once more. I hope so.

With the tlc you give to your plants I'm sure it will.

Thanks for reminding me - I was going to try to grow some more of these pretty plants from seed - is that what you did?

I wish the poorly one well.

I got this as a little gift, barely bigger than this and just last year. It bloomed twice. I think I can do this cycle again and again without need even messing with trimming. Long as she come through. Thanks for the well wishes. :-)
