Begonia maculata angel wings polka dot begonia gift houseplant Delivery Ireland

The polka dot begonia (begonia maculata) has the most unusual shape and spotted foliage.

Light: This begonia will do best in bright, indirect light. It will tolerate medium light but mind your plant doesn't get leggy and stretch for the sun. Do not place in full sun, as the leaves can burn and dry out.

Water: Water your begonia when the top 2-3 inches of soil are crumbly and dry. Make sure to empty any excess water from your saucer or decorative pot after watering, as they are prone to root rot if left to sit in water. 

Humidity: It will do great in average household humidity but will appreciate any extra humidity from a humidifier, pebble tray, or steamy bathroom. Polka dot begonias are one plant that absolutely do NOT like to be misted. They are prone to powdery mildew which can occur if their leaves are kept wet for a long time. 

Feed: Once a month during spring and summer give it a general houseplant fertiliser diluted to half the recommended strength.

Toxicity: Begonias are toxic if ingested and are not pet friendly.
