I saw a plant that the leaves are pink and green almost polkadotted. There wasn't a tag with it and of course no one around to ask what kind it is. Does anyone have any idea?

Thanks

The common name is polkadot plant. bet you I misspelled that. They are a houseplant. I've never been successful at growing them but I do think they are great plants.

Thank you tkhooper. I looked it up and that is exactly what it is. No, I would say you misspelled polkadot. It just is supposed to have space between polka dot. I give you an A for effort. = )

Have a lovely day!

Here in Tennessee it's pronounced polkie-dot! :-)

that's cute. polkie-dot. I'm sure it's said with an accent too right? I wish I had an accent. Oh well. I think I'm gonna go get me one and try it out. The plant, not the accent.
