Plant Size Chart

The Begonia Maculata Wightii, often referred to as the Polka Dot Begonia, is a Type 3 plant. This beguiling variety is famed for its eye-catching olive-green leaves adorned with vivid silver polka dots, and its underside is a striking red, adding a dramatic flair. It's a true showstopper in any indoor garden collection.

Good to Know

  • Light: Prefers bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can cause leaf burn, while too little light can lead to loss of vivid leaf patterns.
  • Water: Enjoys consistently moist soil. Allow the top layer of soil to dry slightly between waterings, but avoid letting the soil dry out completely.
  • Soil: Thrives in a well-draining, fertile potting mix. Good aeration is essential to prevent root rot.
  • Temperature: Prefers warm, consistent temperatures. Avoid exposure to sudden temperature changes and cold drafts.
  • Humidity: Loves high humidity. Consider using a humidifier or placing the pot on a tray of watered pebbles to maintain the right environment.
  • Growth: Known for its fast growth during the growing season. Can be pruned to maintain shape and encourage fuller growth.
  • Origin: Native to the tropical rainforests, this begonia is valued for both its decorative foliage and easy care.

Who's it for?

The Begonia Maculata Wightii is ideal for plant lovers who enjoy the striking beauty and dynamic growth patterns of tropical plants. While it requires a bit more attention, particularly with humidity and watering, it rewards with stunning foliage and is suitable for both beginners and experienced plant enthusiasts looking for something special.
