Secrets to success
Temperature: Ideally between 15 and 20°C.
Light: Bright, indirect light is ideal for Begonia, ensure you don't place this beauty on a south-facing window ledge as the leaves would scorch.
Air Humidity: They enjoy a high humidity environment - this can be achieved by placing the plant on a tray of pebbles. The pebbles should be half submerged in water, as the water evaporates, it creates humidity around the plant.
Watering: Keep soil moist between spring and autumn, allow the top inch of soil to dry out between watering. Keep the soil drier in winter.
This plant is toxic, keep out of reach of pets and children.
