Plant Care Guide: Begonia Polka Dot
Begonia Polka Dot // Begonia Maculata
Shaped like angel wings and with cute little polka dots to match, the Begonia Polka Dot's leaves are simply one of a kind. Add a dramatic red tint to the underside of her leaves and pretty pink florals in the warmer months and voila! You have yourself one of the prettiest plant pals around.
Keep this beauty cute and compact by ensuring she has plenty of access to bright indirect light, or she may get a little leggy reaching for those rays. Plus, those indirect rays will help her blooms stay bright and vibrant.
But be sure not to overwater her as she can be a bit of a delicate darling.
|Likes a little attention
|Bright indirect sunlight is ideal
|Not pet friendly if ingested
|Water once the top few cm of soil has dried out
These beauties thrive in humid conditions, but due to their unique leaves, do not like misting. They can adapt to drier conditions but if you're wanting to keep up those humidity levels, consider grouping your plant pals together, or a small watered pebble tray under your plant.
