    about this plant

    The Begonia Maculata, memorably known as the Polka Dot Begonia, is a real eye-catcher. With her beautiful distinctive spotty patterning and surprising pink-red colour on the underside of her leaves, she’d be right at home on the catwalk! And luckily she loves the spotlight- put her in a bright spot and she will shine every day! The Begonia maculata is an undemanding, rewarding plant but be careful; her leaves and stems are mildly poisonous, so best kept well away from pets.

    The Begonia maculata likes a light spot but doesn't put her in direct sunlight or her leaves might get burned. She’s a fan of humidity, so make sure her soil stays a little moist, but not too much because she hates having wet roots. Her leaves and stems are poisonous to pets, so she’s best kept well away from them. During the spring and summer, the growing season, give her some extra organic PLNTS nutrition on a regular basis to offer optimal support.

    My order traveled a long way (to Finnish Lapland) but the plants arrived in a great condition - although I order plants in wintertime (April). Begonia maculata was a little shabby at first and dropped few leaves, but it recovered really quickly. Now it looks gorgeous and I love it.

    arrived with crispy leaves and grey spots. Although I tried really hard, it never recovered. I am usually very satisfied with the shop but not with this plant.
