Specifications
Begonia venosa

Some begonias require a little more attention than others. However, begonia venosa is not one of these. The plant is one of the most indestructible species, without compromising the beauty of the plant. Begonia venosa has a remarkable growth habit. The plant grows on a stem instead of in a compact rosette. White flowers emerge at the ends of the stems during flowering.

Product info

Begonia venosa in indigenous to Brazil, where the species grows in a relatively harsh climate. The leaves look a lot like those of a lily, but are covered with many tiny white hairs. This gives the leaves their special shine. Begonia venosa grows in height and can therefore reach a length of up to half a meter. The flowers of this species are smaller than average, but stand out because of their color and number.

Plant care

Begonia venosa is a very tough plant. Dehydration and neglect are tolerated to a large extent. The plant does need a lot of light and also likes a small amount of direct sunlight. The room temperature must be above 10⁰C and below 30⁰C, ideally between 20-25⁰C. During the day, an optimal humidity of around 65% is required, at night it may be slightly higher. Place the plant in a pot with good drainage. The soil should be allowed to dry up before watering again. It is advisable to use a mix with peat as a substrate. Give the plant some plant food once every two weeks. We offer several options in our "plant accessories" section. You can safely prune Begonia venosa if it grows too large
