Gorgeous angel wing shaped leaves with white polka dots make this plant stand out among the rest. These plants are vigorous growers and can reach heights of over 6 feet tall when staked. Begonias are fans of indirect light. Direct sun can burn the foliage and dry the plant out quickly. Because it is native to tropical Brazil, this plant enjoys a daily misting or a humidifier running nearby.
Begonias grown outdoors in North Texas need to be kept in the shade. We do not recommend keeping your plant outside during periods of extreme heat or cold. Regular watering is advised, especially if your region is relatively dry (in comparison to the neo tropics.) Never let your Begonia become exposed to sub freezing temperatures. When temperatures reach 55 degrees and below, be sure to move your plants inside to a warm & bright environment.
