*Begonias are toxic to both humans and pets as all parts of the plant contain calcium oxalate crystals. We deem this plant safe for use with the above animals, but the more risk-averse may wish to avoid it. For more information please visits the ASPCA list of Toxic and Non-Toxic Plants

Care Notes: Well-draining soil is necessary for this plant to thrive. Consistently wet soil will cause the roots to rot. Prefers higher humidity levels. Sensitive to cold drafts. 

Shipping Notes: As a good practice, Josh's Frogs recommends washing all plants thoroughly removing as much soil as possible with dechlorinated water before placing them in their final home. Live plants may vary in color, size, and appearance.

The plant pictured is in a 2.5" pot.
