Description

Begonia Maculata Wightii, also known as Polka Dot Begonia, is known for its dramatic dark green leaves that look like angel’s or bat wings and silver dots. It’s an upright-cane type begonia native to Brazil. The bottom of the leaf is dark red what makes the plant even more picturesque. Begonia Maculata Wightii is one of the most striking house plants!

Begonia Maculata can grow up to 1,5m in height and produces pale flowers from late winter throughout spring. Begonia is highly susceptible to root rot, therefore you should always be careful to not overwater it. Also, when watering it, pour water directly onto the soil, ensuring the leaves remain dry.

If you’re a Begonia fan, we also have the wonderful Begonia Tamaya in store.

The plant is approximately 25cm tall and it comes in a 12cm plastic nursery pot. Pair it with Violaine Toth cosmos planter or NAHK blue planter.

Care Tips:

Light: bright, indirect light, no direct sunlight

Water: keep the soil moist but not soggy wet

Humidity: average

Soil: soil-less, acidic

WARNING: this plant is toxic to animals if ingested.
