A plant with surely eyecatching foliage of small, chocolate to bronze-red leaves and bright green paw (apparently tiger paw) like markings. Leaves have eyelash like hairs so you already have an idea how the name of the plant was made. This little pretty plant is a fast grower if provided with appropriate growing conditions. It can grow up until 25-30cm size and width.
- Eyelash Begonia likes bright to medium, indirect sunlight.
- Water regularly allowing the soil to dry between waterings. Avoid overwatering as it may cause fungal diseases or rot. Using a Sustee Moisture Meter stick helps to figure out how much moisture is in the soil so you don’t under or overwater.
- Your Tiger Paws plant will do well in loose draining soil, so a generic house planting mix with some added perlite should work well. To repot this plant, you will need around 1 pack of For My Plants potting mix for the most loved houseplants.
- No pruning required. Just take off dead leaves from the plant and soil surface to avoid disease problems.
- Toxic to pets.
Height of the plant - 10 cm. Diameter of the pot - 6 cm. Sustee size S.
