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
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.
