Specifications
Begonia lanceolata
Begonia lanceolata is native to Brazil where it grows as an epiphyte on trees and rocks. It takes its name from its lance-shaped leaves. They are bright green with several white spots and slightly hairy with red border edging. Flower stalks, each bearing several white flowers, grow between the attractive leaves. Begonia lanceolata can be quite challenging to cultivate, but it is quite easy to meet its needs in a terrarium

Plant care

Begonia lanceolata may be something of a challenge but if essential rules are observed, virtually nothing can go wrong. The plant needs a cool spot in total shade with a temperature of around 22⁰C. It needs daytime humidity of 70% and 90% at night. The growing medium must be kept slightly moist with the addition of lukewarm water if it is in danger of drying out. A mixture of peat and coconut fibre serves as a good growing medium. See the section entitled ‘Plant accessories’ for more details. If the plant does not seem to be growing satisfactorily, fertilise it with plant food twice a month.
