Begonia maculata - 'Polka Dot Begonia' (S)
Native to Brazil, the Begonia maculata is a popular household plant for its unique patten and eye catching silhouette. Its slender arrow-shaped leaves are a deep, mature green patterned with almost metallic white spots, and are a purple-bronze colour on the underside of the leaf. A showstopping plant that will draw attention! Expect flowers blooming in whites and pinks which sprout from dainty little stems. Performing best in bright indirect sunlight with stored humidity, the Polka Dot Begonia will channel Yayoi Kusama vibes to any living space.
Flourishes best in bright indirect sunlight to low light levels. Positioning closer to a light source will allow Begonia to thrive and flower. Avoid direct sunlight to prevent scorched leaves. Keep constant humidity and moistures levels by frequently misting, and water in moderation once topsoil is dry, especially during warmer months. Use half-strength fertiliser during growing season for healthy development, and remove flowers after bloom is completed to prepare for future blooms.
Keep soil moist but well drained, mist regularly.
