One look at this plant and you know it is a special one. The Begonia masoniana has medium sized apple green leaves with distinctive chocolate cross-shaped markings in the center. Its foliage is also asymmetrical and highly textured, with little bristles on the surface.
The key to keeping this Begonia happy and healthy is keeping its soil moist. However, make sure the soil is moderately damp but not soggy to prevent diseases and root rot from setting in. A good way to do so is to make sure the soil is well-draining and that the top inch dries out between waterings. This Begonia is not as picky when it comes to lighting conditions. It is best placed in areas that receive bright indirect light but can also withstand moderate light conditions.
High humidity will keep your Begonia happy. You can use a humidifier to boost humidity at home or mist it at least once a day. Placing it in a tray filled will pebbles and water will also do the trick.
The Begonia masoniana is definitely a unique plant that should be on any exotic plant collector’s list.
Important to know: As plants are natural products, form, pattern and colour will vary.
