Begonia Soli- Mutata is a compact, rhizomatous Begonia species which is native to Brazil. It has medium sized leaves, which are light green with dark green margins. These leaves have a pebble like texture and are red in colour underneath. It will produce clusters of small white flowers. 

The colour of the leaves varies depending on light exposure. This begonia like most prefers bright and indirect light. Some browning of the edges of the leaves can occur when the humidity is to low. This begonia higher humidity levels of 60% or higher. Using a terrarium can help achieve this in low humidity climates.

Like most begonias this stunner prefers a loose, well-draining soil to ensure adequate air-rating of the roots and ensure its not to stay too wet. To ensure over watering does not occur only water when the top two inches of the potting medium is dry.

Please note that Begonias some times don’t post well, so keep in mind that you may receive a plant with floppy/brown edged leaves. They generally bounce back pretty quickly and will push out fresh leaves once potted up.

(You will receive a bare rooted plant similar to the one seen in the images. Each living plant is unique and may vary slightly in size, colour or shape.)
