This one is a showy beauty with bold markings. Native to Mexico and northern Central America, this rhizomatous begonia species is also known as the “Star Begonia”.
Enjoys moderate,indirect light and well-draining soil. Use a good quality grow mix with extra perlite for drainage. Fertilize 1-2x per month with a general water-soluble fertilizer at reduced strength.
Grown in our pesticide-free greenhouse, so accustomed to higher humidity than the general household conditions. Allow time to acclimate.
Established starter plant in a 2.5 inch pot.
