Begonia maculata, the Polka Dot Begonia, is a species native to southeast Brazil. It grows naturally in the rainforest in South America. Begonia maculata loves bright, indirect light, but can also thrive in slightly lower-light conditions. Avoid direct sunlight, which will burn the leaves and dry them out.
Begonia maculata, is a splashy show-stopper that looks fantastic with its olive green leaves and contrasting spots. It is a houseplant that is likely to turn heads in your home or office.
Under the right conditions, Polka Dot Begonias produce clusters of tiny white flowers. The blooming season is typically spring until late summer, but if you maintain this plant as a houseplant as most plant lovers do, you might be treated to a show of blooms at almost any time.
