How to care for your Spotted Leaf Begonia | 12cm | Houseplant

Native habitat

The spotted Begonia is native to South East Brazil.

Light and position in the home

Begonia can thrive in bright, indirect light but it also doesn't mind some light shade, making it an easy to care for houseplant. Direct sunlight may result in sunburn, which leads to dry leaves.


This Begonia enjoys a fairly moist soil year-round, water regularly during the summer and reduce watering come winter, when the soil won't be drying out quite as quickly. Avoid overwatering by checking the soil moisture level with your finger.
