A fascinating hybrid of Begonia which when viewed from the underside, the foliage allow light to pass through its thin membrane in the mid-section! This resembles stained glass windows that one could find in a cathedral. It produces small, deep pink flowers on a tall inflorescence. It needs to be placed in partial shade to full shade as they do well in lower light situations, resulting in a more intense colouration. Like most rhizomatous Begonia, it should be well watered and allowed to dry slightly before the next watering.
Light: Place the plant in a well-ventilated area whereby it can receive 4-6 hours of bright (preferably indirect) sunlight daily.
Water: Once a day, water the plants thoroughly till excess water drains out of the pot. Do not allow the potting substrate to dry out completely.
Temperature: Plant tolerates temperatures from 18-28°C.
Fertilizer: An all-purpose, water-soluble balanced fertilizer that contains an equal amount of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium (e.g. N-P-K: 15-15-15 +TE) will help to boost the plant's overall health by feeding it every two weeks. Otherwise, a slow-release fertilizer (e.g. Osmocote) can be incorporated into the potting media, and to be replenished after about 2-3 months. Do follow the recommended dosage indicated on the fertilizer’s application instructions.
