VANESSA - PINK SPLASH PLANT
Vanessa - She's an awesome gift for Mother's Day or Valentines' Day... Or just any old day! Splash Plant mix or Hypoestes phyllostachya is usually called 'Pink Splash', but other common names are “Polka-dot Plant” or “Freckle Face”. Everyone is charmed by Vanessa, but she can be finicky! Please make sure you're a watering-conscious plant parent if you're going to invite Vanessa into your home!
• Light: Bright indirect Light
• Water: Your soil should always feel slightly damp, but never swampy! Misting is AWESOME for Vanessa, as she loves to be in humid climates (like the rain forest, y'all! she's a native of South Africa, Madagascar, and south east Asia).
• Considerations: Vanessa is sensitive to environmental stress, and drought. She may wilt like a little brat if she gets dry, but just water her, and she should pop back up. High humidity and persistent watering will help this plant thrive.
