Begonia maculata "Wightii"...This is one wacky Begonia she has a unique white dotted upper leaf and deep red underbelly. To start with I found my Begonia maculata a little demanding but once I got to know what she likes she is very easy to keep happy.
Care: These grow really well in bright light but not direct hot sunlight as this will scorch her lovely leaves. Keep the soil moist I give my Begonia maculata a good soak once the first 2 inches of soil dry out. I wouldn't let her dry out completely. I also found she preferred a terracotta pot rather than a plastic pot as this helps absorb any excuess water. I would make sure you provide a good level of humidity. I would fill a saucer/tray with clay pebbles and add water, make sure the bottom of the pot isn’t submerged in water and you can mist her regularly too.
The plastic pot size is 10cm and the total height is approximately 30-39cm
