VANESSA - SPLASH PLANT TWO-COLOR
Vanessa - is relatively common, but it's hard to find one of these gals that has both the pink and white varieties in one pot! This hard to find 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: Medium to low 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.
