Straight out of your Alice in Wonderland dreams, these colourful plants have a variety of bold foliage in every colour you can think of!
The Begonia likes to be kept moist at all times and be treated to a regular misting. It thrives in high humidity and can end up with crispy leaves without it.
You can increase the humidity around a plant by placing a tray full of pebbles underneath your plant pot and filling it with water, so that it isn’t touching the bottom of the plant pot. The water will slowly evaporate and create humidity for your plant. You could also buy a humidifier.
Alternatively, keep in your bathroom near a window and the steam from your morning shower will keep the humidity levels high enough for your begonia to thrive.
Light: Use a filtered/indirect light to ensure your plant keeps its gorgeous bold colours.
Water: Keep soil moist but do not let it sit in water.
Food: Feed monthly during the growing season.
Humidity: These plants need a high humidity to keep the leaves from cripsing and to promote growth. Use the pebble tray method or mist but ideally place close by to a humidifier.
