Also known as the polka-dot begonia, this beautiful plant is native to Southeast Brazil--and yes, those bright white spots are natural! This plant loves bright indirect light and regular watering. Make sure to keep the soil moist (but not wet) and provide lots of humidity whenever you can.
These plants grow tall and may need a stake for support at some point, and will bloom lovely pink flowers between summer and fall when mature.
If you’re worried about getting your water schedule right, we recommend using a Moisture Meter! These handy tools will help you gauge if your plant needs water or not, without the mess of sticking your hands in the soil to check.
If a plant is out of stock, we apologize – we’re very grateful for our community’s support, and can sell out of certain plants quite quickly! We get new plants about once a week and try to source all our community’s favs as fast as we can.
If you’re local to the LA area, we recommend coming into the shop when you can, especially if you’re looking for a new plant! We have much more plants in our store than we display online, as well as a full backyard greenhouse that houses our discounted rehab plants that need a bit more TLC from a new home.
