Begonia 'Marmaduke' is a unique cultivar with chartreuse yellow, hairy leaves speckled with burgundy red flecks. It produces lightly-scented pale whitish pink flowers. They grow in an upright clump and prefer well-drained, humus-rich soil. The bright colour makes it an eye-catching piece in your home garden.
Like most Begonia, it will tolerate full shade without direct or filtered sun, but wouldn't produce dense foliage. Provide sharp-draining potting substrate in shade and water when top layer is dry to the touch (yet avoiding soggy conditions). The ideal temperature range lies between 20-26°C.
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 potting substrate to dry out completely.
Temperature: Plant tolerates temperatures from 18-28°C.
