Description

GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Begonia amphioxus is an exotic terrestrial plant, popular for its admirable foliage.
  • This evergreen Malaysian native plant has elongated leaves pointed at both ends.
  • These leaves are green with maroon or burgundy spots and margins.
  • The unusual shape, colors, and spotted patterns of leaves make the plant look heavenly.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • It prefers light, rich soil.
  • When planting directly in the ground, a moist, well-drained location is optimal and mulch will keep the roots shaded.
  • In pots, be sure to provide drainage holes.
  • A peat-based potting mix is ideal for containers.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Fertilize in the spring when new growth starts to appear.
  • Feed every two weeks with a balanced plant food diluted to ¼ the recommended strength.
  • Feed less in the fall and not at all in the winter.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • It requires a bright but lightly shaded spot, well away from the direct glare of the sun.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Water freely between spring and autumn, allowing the pot to drain well after each watering.
  • In winter, reduce watering but do not allow the compost to completely dry out.
