Begonia medora

Description

The Begonia medora is a rare, unusual looking houseplant but strikingly stunning. She is usually grown for her unique patterns found upon her green leaves. She has large elliptical, large green leaves that are splattered with silver spots and the underside is a deep burgundy colour which creates an amazing contrast. If you treat her right and she is happy you might get lucky enough to see her pink, waxy flower clusters. What she lacks in flowers, she makes up for in unique and colourful leaves. In fact, many avid growers prefer the non-blooming types because you can’t beat their stunning foliage.

Place her in bright, filtered light indoors or the full shade outdoors. 

Watering is a bit tricky, they like just the right amount of water to keep them moist, but they hate having soggy soil which rots their roots. Rather than watering begonias on a set schedule, you should always check to make sure they need it first. The best trick is to feel if the first few cms of the soil are dry to touch before watering again.

  • Quick Facts
  • What to use me for: Great in a hanging pot

    I grow to: 30-60cm high, 40-50cm wide 

    Where to place me: I like a spot with dappled shade, place me in an area with good airflow.

    Watering conditions: I like good water regularly but make sure my soil is dry to touch before topping me up. Getting my water requirements right is kinda tricky so you might want to use a Sustee to guide you. It's good to note I don't like my leaves wet so try bottom-up watering if you can. To do that, simply fill the plant tray or cachepot, and allow the soil to soak it up through the drainage holes. Don’t let her soak for too long though, only to the point where the soil is moist again. Tip out any water that hasn’t been absorbed after 20 minutes.

    Soil Conditions: I like a good quality potting mix with a slow-release fertiliser, pretty please.

    Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently.

  • Size
  • I am currently 10-15cm tall in a 50mm nursery tube 

  • Growing
  • If the plant starts to become a bit messy looking you can give her a tip prune or stake her. In the early days if you pinch some of her leaves off you will get a nice, fuller plant down the track.  

    Growing begonias in self-watering pots is a great way to make bottom watering easy, and it will also help prevent overwatering.

  • Delivery
  • Our plants are beautifully grown and have well-developed roots. They are hardened, can be planted directly into the planters and are excellent performing Indoor plants - it’s our plant promise guarantee!

    We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and fast, free delivery to your door
