Plant care

This plant is fairly easy to cultivate. It is does best in a terrarium with good air circulation. It needs plenty of light but must not be exposed to direct sunlight. The temperature must never fall below 15⁰C or rise above 30⁰C. A level of 70% humidity is desirable during the daytime and 20% higher at night. Keep the growing medium moist by regular misting with a plant spray. A layer of moss will also help to retain moisture. This tropical begonia can be fertilised regularly twice a month. A good potting compound that will help the plant grow consists of a mixture of peat and another element such as perlite. Go to “Plant accessories” for details of this and other products for your houseplants.
