Plant care

Begonia salaziensis is fairly easy to care for. Avoid direct sunlight in the summer, keep temperature between 20⁰C and 24⁰C, and the humidity between 70% -80%. Mist the plant regularly if the humidity is lower. Water, using lukewarm water, when the top layer of the soil starts to dry. A mix of peat with perlite is a suitable substrate to prevent wet soil. You can find this and other growing supplies under the 'plant accessories' section. Fertilize the Begonia salziensis twice a month. You can prune the plant when it becomes too large.
