Hypoestes is a spreading evergreen plant with delicately veined leaves.
It is a low-growing creeper that is a perfect fit for terrariums or bottle gardens.
Pot Size: 100mm
As a tropical plant that naturally grows in the humid bright shade of tropical forests, this plant prefers similar conditions when grown as a houseplant. It dislikes full sunlight, preferring bright, indirect light. It will also thrive under fluorescent lights.
Hypoestes like a moderate amount of moisture in the soil at all times. A good rule of thumb is to water when the top 1cm of soil has dried out.
It will thrive in a general potting mix with excellent drainage.
Hypoestes is on the ASPCA's Non Toxic to Pets list. Best practice is always to keep houseplants out of reach of small children and pets.
