EASYfinds: these plants are in need of love and care, and we are selling them from 1 - 7 EUR. Money raised through selling these will go to our charity project "Tiny Baby Node", to buy more thread to knit sets for prematurely born babies.

 

This one fell straight from heaven. Definitely not your grandmother's Begonia, the maculata is a real eyecatcher with its large angel wing-shaped leaves patterned with polka dots on top and a deep purple-red on the bottom side. The silvery-white polka dots look almost unreal as if they were painted onto the deep olive-green leaves. But this is nature's magic, head to toes! And do you want to know something great? The Polkadot Begonia maculata is a houseplant that is pretty easy to care for!

 

PLANT CARE: 

 Your Maculata plant will do well in loose draining soil, so a generic house planting mix with some added perlite should work well. 

 Water regularly, because the Begonia maculata does not like to stay dry too long. It likes the soil to be somewhat moist. But watch out for soggy roots, no plant wants those. So do allow the top of the soil to dry out before watering. And let the pot drain completely before putting it back on the saucer or in its cache pot.

 The Begonia maculata likes bright, indirect sunlight. But it can also grow in lower light situations. Keep your plant out of direct afternoon sun. If it gets too much sun, the leaves can burn and dry out.

 

P.S. Pots are sold separately.
