Begonia maculata is an extremely striking plant. Loved for its olive green foliage covered in silver polka dots, it is a beautiful plant to add to your collection. It has small pink flowers from spring to autumn but it's all about the foliage for this one!
Pot size: 130mm
Bright, indirect light. Higher light levels will promote strong growth and blooms, but avoid direct sunlight.
High humidity is important. It will also benefit from regular misting.
Allow the top 2cm of potting mix to dry out in between watering.
Use a high quality potting mix with excellent drainage.
Repot in spring - remember to only go up one pot size. If you choose too big a pot, then the excess potting mix retains moisture and can lead to fungal problems and root rot.
