Polka Dot Plant

Have you ever seen a polka dot plant? I hadn’t, until the one I have now was placed on my desk. Sure is a goofy little plant.

So here’s the thing–who got to name it the Polka Dot plant? To be completely honest, it’s not even polka dotted–it’s speckled. Or maybe Splashed would be a good word. And it’s slightly fuzzy. I think a better name would have been the Speckly Splashed Slightly Fuzzy plant. Polka dot plant just doesn’t cut it.

Question: Does someone out there have the title “Senior Plant Namer”? “Executive Plant Picker Outer”? “Dean of Plant Names”? Seriously–I want to name something. What if I just decided to change the name of the Polka Dot plant? First off, would anyone even care? Or notice?

I’ll bet the CEO of Polka Dot plants would care. Yep, I’ll bet she would.

    Can we vote you into the naming committee? You made me care so much about polka dot plants that I googled them just to see pictures. I would have to agree with you. They are much more speckled than polka dotted. P.S. Keep blogging. You entertain me. 🙂

I'd love to hear from you!
