This stunning beauty is another reason why our plant shop is called The Painted Leaf. I mean, did someone really just paint silver splotches all over each leaf? This is the Christian Louboutin of houseplants, with a vibrant, dark red underside. And best of all? This plant isn't difficult to care for, and does not need intense light. See the water and light requirements below. If you have never owned a begonia, the new growth is so cute! Perhaps you can give these beauties a try!

 

These are toxic to pets, so be careful with your furry friends. 

 

Note: Plants are unique! The plant pictured is meant to give you an idea of the specification and quality of the plant you will receive, but will not be an exact replica.

Light Requirements

Variable

This plant prefers medium to bright indirect light, but can tolerate lower light as well. In light that is too low, however, it most likely will give a leggier appearance. However, it is important to not expose this plant to direct light as the leaves are prone to burning. Rotate your plant regularly to keep the even shape.

Water Requirements

Moderate

The Begonia maculata ideally likes a consistently moist (not consistently wet) environment. It would do well with watering a bit at a time once you notice that the top few inches of soil are starting to dry out. Note: Be sure not to let the plant sit in pooled water as that can cause root rot.
