Begonia 'Exotica' (S)
An absolute show stopper, Begonia 'Exotica' has stunning pink/red wing-shaped leaves with dark green veins, growing on long cane-like stalks. Native to New Guinea and not a cultivated hybrid, this plant is surprisingly easy to grow, given warmth and humidity and has a shrub-like growth pattern when mature. Please note, this plant should not be consumed and should be kept away from pets or children.
Prefers bright indirect light and organically rich, moist and well-rained soil. Avoid direct sun as it will burn the leaves. Best in high humidity especially during the growing period. Allow soil to dry out between watering and watch for overwatering which can cause fungal diseases or rot.
