Care Notes: Well-draining soil is necessary for this plant to thrive. If the plant begins to rapidly drop leaves, reduce watering frequency. Sensitive to standing water on the leaves. 

*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

 

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.

Nice Plant

This begonia is lovely. It arrived very well packaged. Lost a few leaves during shipping, but that's totally expected since this is a plant with delicate foliage. it was also a little bit floppy after arrival, but it bounced back fine. It's been 5 days since unboxing so far, and doing very well.

Begonia polilloensis

This plant arrived in great condition.Was so looking forward to seeing it grow. I eventually killed it. I feel it was my fault tho, since then I made sure to purchase abg mix and my plants are doing so much better.
