This Begonia ‘’Silver Jewel’’ is a true gem for any plant fanatic. With its heart shaped, silvery leaves that have beautiful light veins, this Begonia steals the shows. The leaves are covered with tiny hairs, which gives this plant a velvet-like look. To put the cherry on top, this plant develops small cream-colored flowers in winter.

Plant care

The soil of this plant has to be kept moist, but make sure you don’t overwater it, as that can cause the roots to rot. It would be best for the soil to be slightly dry between watering. Be careful when watering on the leaves as they can be easily damaged. The Begonia ‘’Silver Jewel’’ does well in bright indoor areas, but make sure not to place it in direct sunlight.
