The polka dot begonia will provide a splash of color to your living area. The spotted leaves are playful and whimsical, and the deep purple undersides are stunning.

Hoyas, often known as wax flowers, are gorgeous plants. This type has extremely thick, waxy leaves, and if yours blooms, it will produce clusters of star-shaped pink-white flowers.

The stems of the alocasia zebrina are maybe its most distinctive feature. They have elephant-sized ears and zebra-like stripes on their bodies. This plant prefers bright light, so a southwest-facing window is ideal.

Alocasia Zebrina
