Polka dot plants have spotted leaves that come in white, pink and red.

The Ruby Rubber Plant is one of the many varieties of rubber trees. It sports bright pink leaves that can grow up to 30 centimetres in size. Rubber trees can reach a height of 3 metres indoors and prefer medium to bright light. Water your rubber tree every few weeks as they don’t like getting too dry.

4. Pink Arrowhead Plant
Arrowhead plants, also known as syngoniums grow upright when small, but develop trailing stems as they reach maturity. You can prune these stems to keep your plant short and compact.

6. Cordyline Rubra
Cordyline thrive in outdoor conditions and are also known as a houseplant. They produce flowers and berries during different seasons. They grow to 90 centimetres in height and enjoy full sun while tolerating part shade. Cordyline need to be watered regularly that they don’t dry out.
Calatheas have many interesting markings which make them known as the zebra plant, peacock plant and rattlesnake plant. They are also referred to as prayer plants because their leaves fold up at night.
8. Pink Princess Philodendron
Pink Princess Philodendrons (Philodendron Erubescens) are loved for their pink variegated leaves. They enjoy bright indirect light indoors and moist, well-drained soil. They become quite a viney plant, so ensure you have a moss pole or stake to prop it up.
Moonstones are one of the rarer succulents and are harder to hunt down. If you do manage to get your hands on one, they can grow up to 2o centimetres in size and like bright to direct light. Water your succulent once the soil has fully dried out.
10. Calathea Ornata
Calathea Ornatas have lovely striped patterns on their leaves that sport a light pink colour that nicely contrasts the deep green leaf. They like bright light conditions but not direct sunlight and do best when kept moist but not wet.
