⚪️⚪️What’s My Name?⚪️⚪️ ⚫️🔴⚪️A Polka Dot Plant ⚪️🔴⚫️ ⚪️Hy...

For more about the name suggestions see the first few comments below for some ideas
So I went to a “make and take” free workshop at one the the large hardware and gardening companies warehouse and it was a closed terrarium at that stage.
Today I open the jar up for the first time and found new growth but it was too late for #FreshLeafFriday or #FresFeaturedFriday
So given the growth and my error in maybe putting too much of the soil mix in the jar in the first place, I have decided to make it an open terrarium. So does anyone have any tips eg watering schedule or bug issues 🐛

More in the name suggestions below but I would like something that speak to the idea of polka dot dress or freckled face or both!!

How about Audrey after Audrey Hepburn, who looked marvelous in polka dots? Delicate and decidedly feminine, Audrey was always elegant and finely dressed, much like your leafy new friend. ☺️
@Seymour I don’t have my polka dot plants in terrariums and they have been a pain in the a&$ to take care of. Wish I had known about this before my purchase.. may have saved my madness! 😁 I have not a clue on what I am doing with these plants. Flying by the seat of my pants.. lol. A lot of water then not so much .. 🙄 as for names.. no clue. But love the pics.. especially the martini glass.
@Seymour how about “Polka Face” or “Polka Faces” since that on leaf branch is heading towards the Sun or another great one I think you’d like maybe better “Mr. Polka-Dot-Man” a Batman villain who first appeared in a February 1962 comic wearing a skin-tight costume covered in colorful polka dots that would swell up to create deadly weapons at the push of button.
#PlantsMakePeopleHappy @Seymour I placed a post in the link you added in the posting to me I’ll post my name suggestion here for Polka Dot Plant, too. @Seymour how about "Polka Face" or
"Polka Faces" since that on leaf branch is heading towards the Sun or another great one I think you'd like maybe better "Mr.
Polka-Dot-Man" a Batman villain who first appeared in a February 1962 comic wearing a skin-tight costume covered in colorful polka dots that would swell up to create deadly weapons at the push of button.
@CourtlyKingfern I’m with you I just have good roots at this point and afraid to plant . Though I wonder if like @Seymour purchased might bring it back around . Good luck naming you don’t want her starting of life knowing you’ve been warned .
@SensationalKoa Love the name suggestions, Madeline! Always a fan of Batman 🦇but your knowledge is astounding! 1962 comic 🦇 and Weird Al had a song called Polka Face 🤣
Very good suggestions and fun to look up too. Thanks so much 🙏
@LaSiguanaba My Fair Lady, Breakfast at Tiffany’s? Or is this just a Charade?
@Seymour Hiw about this polka dot look from Funny Face? Clearly, Audrey knew her dots!
@Seymour I already added a suggestion however, that’s if you want a male name and after I read @LaSiguanaba for Audrey I then thought of Lucille Ball in her famous polka dot Dress and and just as funny and comedic as you are, lol, so that would be my input for a female name.
@Seymour “Lucy” “Oh, Lucy, I’m Home”
@SensationalKoa @Corinne
Hahaha 😂 Hey Madeline, I don’t know what it is about Lucy (well actually I do) but Corrine and I did a bit of a deep dive for my of my earlier naming, the Nepenthes pitcher plant was ultimately named Merida Rebecca Ferguson (Rebecca flowerFairy">@flowerFairy added the fairy dust 🧚 with that name suggestions, so of course I watched the Pixar movie again and it still holds up.
So I’m sure Lucy is going to feature at some stage I’m sure. However you hit me with a Batman 🦇 reference and Polka Face (Weird Al?!?) so I may save Lucy of a red plant or something!
You are making the choice tougher so may I just need to make a decision soon.
Thanks for your enthusiastic input. Here’s the link and it is around the middle that Lucy makes an appearance thanks to Corinne (great minds?!?)

@LaSiguanaba very good, Rose Red! The way you managed to include Audrey (I have a Greg friend called Audrey, as you know) polka dots AND a movie called Funny Face (not quite Freckled Face but the alliteration is still good!)
And nice photos too
@Seymour Movies snd plants—what’s not to love?!?!? 😁
What is the make and take company called? I would like to go and or participate
@Pinklyfe Hi Kaylie
It’s an Australian company called Bunnings Warehouse but I don’t know where in the world you live so maybe you have a local equivalent or might suggest it or a large brand eg Home Depot
