This Brazilian species bears the common name of the Metallica Begonia, not because of the 90's heavy metal band, due to the iridescent shine and metallic streaks of the leaves. Grown from stem cuttings collected from the Cloud Forest, it is relatively easy to care for, rarely available, Cane Begonia which can grow up to 1m tall. These plants were lovingly produced by our Cloud Forest team.
Tender Loving Care Advice for Begonia:
Begonia are generally considered indoor plants and are prized for the interesting varieties of colours and shapes of their leaves. The occasionally colourful flowers of some species/ cultivars can be considered an added bonus. Begonia love high humidity therefore it is best to place them together with other tropical plants in the house. Many are happy under terrarium style conditions.
Light: Prefer bright indoor areas with indirect sunlight.
Water: Begonia love water however they can rot if over watered. To avoid this, allow the plant media to dry out slightly between waterings. It is also best to avoid watering on the leaves as they can be easily damaged.
