This kind of Begonia is known not only for its ease of maintenance but also for its natural beauty. Begonia aconitifolia is a cane-type begonia that could grow up to 1m in height. It requires little attention and can last a long time when properly cared for.

Grow them in partial sun and dry out between waterings. This cane-type begonia prefers to be grown in temperatures between 27-30°C. Ideally, it should receive more than 40% humidity in order to thrive, placed under bright shade but protected from strong, direct sun that would result in leaf burns.

Light: Place the plant in a well-ventilated area whereby it can receive around 4-6 hours of bright but indirect sunlight daily.

Water: Once or twice 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 23-30°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.
