Product info

Begonia ‘Two Face’ is characterized by its sideways stalked, droplet shaped leaves, as with most begonia species. Leaves grow from bright green stems. From the petiole, the leaves show a grey color that is more pronounced around the grooved veins. More near the leaf edge, the color of the leaf fades into a bright purple. If sunlight hits the leaves, it gives a unique shine over the leaves. The underside of the leaves is cherry red. When mature, it could form a large bush that grows up to a half meter in height. This plant does not produce flowers often and is mainly grown for its leaves. This plant is propagated by cuttings. Take a healthy stem with at least three leaves and let it root in water or in airy soil.

Plant care

Begonia ‘Two Face’ is a cultivated plant that is never found in a natural environment. This species grows best in temperatures between 16 and 30 degrees Celsius. Humidity should be as high as 60%, preferably. Also allow for enough ventilation. Place Begonia ‘Two Face’ in front of an eastern or western facing window. Bright, indirect light will enhance the unique coloration of the leaves. Prevent direct sunlight from reaching the leaves for too long. Place this plant in a humus rich soil that could retain water. It is important not to let the soil dry out completely. Water this plant frequently but prevent the soil from becoming soggy. Fertilize this species with standard plant nutrients for green plants, the recommended dose on a monthly basis.
