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. Gets droopy if left unwatered for too long, moderate watering once noticed should correct this issue. Prune back older leaves during the growing season. 

*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.

The picture doesn't do it justice!

Ordered 5 different Begonias and they came in beautiful condition. This plant is way more gorgeous in person! Quickly shipped, even with all that's going on, and packed neatly. I will be making another order shortly. Thank you so much for my new plant babies!

This begonia has a nice silver/metallic pattern through it that is quite striking.
