Hypoestes Care

Temperature: Room temperatures of around 65°f - 75°f are ideal. Try not to allow temperatures to decrease lower than 60°f / 15.5°c and it's advised to avoid cold drafts or abrupt temperature changes.
Light: Hypoestes thrives in bright light, but not direct sunlight, as it will cause leaf problems (edges turn yellow, patches, or develop holes). 
Watering:  It's best to water them once the soil becomes slightly dry to the touch and water from the top or bottom. Do not allow Hypoestes to dry out, as they will wilt and die.
Soil: A fast draining soil mix is best, but any high quality potting mix will suffice.
Fertilizer: Fertilize every couple of weeks with a balanced fertilizer.
Re-Potting: Re-pot when needed 
Air Humidity: These need high humidity and plenty of gentle misting (with luke warm water, not in direct sunlight and only the leaves) for healthy growth and to flower well. You can use a humidity tray to support the correct levels that needs to have small pebbles or a layer of gravel at the bottom with water added below the surface.
Propagation: By cuttings or by splitting parent plants,
Grooming and pruning: It's wise to remove dying leaves, flowers and the stems as soon as possible to encourage new growth.
