Begonia Maculata - Polka Dot Begonia

Pot size ⌀14cm


Polka dot begonia is a stunning and popular houseplant that adds style and drama to any room. This beautiful foliage plant has, as the name suggests, all dots on the leaf. Countless, have you counted them yet? The underside of this plant is purple red, which together with the green on top surface crelates dramatic contrast.

Young polka dot begonia is a beautiful houseplant for shelves and desks. As it matures, with good care, it becomes a beautiful floor plant, reaching 4 feet tall or more. 

While its variegated leaves are the main reason to grow it, polka dot begonia can also show off clusters of small white flowers on and off throughout the year if it gets enough light.
