  • PET FRIENDLY: YES
  • TEMPERATURE: The Begonia Maculata is a tropical plant, and, therefore, cannot thrive in cold conditions. Its ideal temperature is between 18 to 22 degrees Celsius or (67 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit). This might be a tall order for anyone in temperate climates, such as Europe, but rest assured temperature-related damage does not happen until temperatures drop to less than 15 degrees Celsius (or 60 degrees Fahrenheit).
  • LIGHT: The Polka dot Begonia prefers a bit more shade than most indoor plants. Placing it in a bright, well-lit room away from direct sunlight is advisable to keep those silvery-white olive leaves vibrant. If the leaves start to appear scorched, you should move it to a less sunny part of the room. If you like to take your plant outside during summer, make sure to place it in the shade away from direct sunlight.
  • WATERING: Striking the right balance when it comes to watering the Begonia Maculata is quite a challenge. For starters, the soil should be a bit damp, but not overly wet. This is because it is highly susceptible to root rot. Before watering, you should first test the soil for dampness by dipping a finger into the soil- the top portion should be dry to about an inch deep. If you are unsure of whether to water it or not, it is actually better to err on the side of caution until the leaves start to show signs of wilting, an indication that there is little water left in the pot. When watering it, pour water directly onto the soil, ensuring the leaves remain dry.
  • FERTILIZER: It is advisable to fertilize the Begonia Maculata after every two weeks to encourage growth of healthy leaves and more prominent blooms.
