Specifications
Begonia chloroneura
This extremely rare species has highly distinctive leaves that are almost fluorescent in appearance. Bright lime-green veins stand out against dull dark green upper leaf surfaces and the red undersides of the leaf blades. When the plant blooms, it produces more than ten white flowers tinged with pink and occasionally with faint, bright red lines on the petals, protruding above the leaves. Begonia chloroneura can be grown in a terrarium or in a pot as a house plant.

Plant care

Begonia chloroneura can be grown by virtually anyone. It needs plenty of light but must be kept away from direct sunlight. The best temperature is between 22 and 25⁰C. Problems for the plant will occur if the temperature is higher than 30⁰C or lower than 10⁰C. During the daytime, humidity of 70% is sufficient but needs to be slightly higher at 90% at night. The growing medium must not be allowed to dry out. Keep it moist by placing the pot in a dish containing a small quantity of warm water. Begonia chloroneura must be fertilised regularly 2 to 3 times a month. The best growing medium is a peat-based mixture. The section entitled “Plant accessories” contains information on different types of growing medium and other useful products. Begonia chloroneura can be pruned when necessary.
