Begonia Maculata is an excellent, exotic looking houseplant and shade house plant easy to grow and maintain. The green leaves are undercoated with burgundy red, with the top of the leaves covered in silver spots. By mid to late winter a show of dramatic, miniature, very pale pink, pendant blooms. Can tolerate low light as long as you adjust the watering. Keep moist but not wet, a little on the dry side is better. This Begonia loves humidity! Best in bright indirect light, higher light levels will promote strong growth and blooms, avoid direct sun. Use a regular houseplant fertiliser but dilute it to less than half strength. It's best to prune at least twice a year to maintain compact growth. Begonia Maculata will grow to a height of 1.2-1.5m and a width of 60-90cm.
