The most striking feature of this begonia is its wispy, deeply divided leaves. The foliage is typically a rich green with red overtones and a glossy texture. The plant's growth pattern is trailing or creeping, which means it tends to sprawl or cascade as it grows. If you observe leggy or overgrown stems, you can pinch back to maintain a more compact appearance and encourage bushier growth. You may observe delicate, small white to pale pink flowers, but the primary attraction of this plant is its foliage rather than its blooms.
- Does best with high humidity -excellent in a closed terrarium
- It does fine with variations of bright-medium indirect to dappled light, but no direct sun as this will scorch the delicate leaves.
- Maintain slightly moist soil but not soggy.
- Keep away from drafty window and heating vents
