Hypoestes from Seed

I am growing Hypoestes 'Splash Select Mix' for our plant sale. It is always popular because it is such an unusual looking plant. They take quite a while to bulk up, so I started these quite early this year. I love how you can almost distinguish the different colors very early on.

After a couple of week, the tiny seedlings show above were large enough to transplant out into flats.

A few weeks later, you can really start to see the polka-dot pattern. These are great little plants for fairy gardens, can be grown as houseplants, and do well outside in shadier conditions.
