South America in the round: the spotted Begonia awaits you in coconut fiber!
The msculated Begonia becomes even more fascinating in this coconut fiber vase. A plant already in itself rather curious, combined with this particular natural coconut fiber vase, becomes a real attraction in any place being placed. The vase is a technique that incorporates the Japanese art, that is hanging the bonsai in "spheres" composed of soil and moss or algae. The bonsai is thus admired in its entirety, and not only "from above". The vase modernizes this millennial Japanese idea using a coconut fiber, just that of the walnuts that we all know, that contains a waterproof jar inside where the plant is inserted, all completely natural and biodegradable.
The begonia maculata has leaves that immediately jump to the eye, of an olive-green color and speckled with white dots, with the shape that can remember the wings of an angel. The same leaves, with a rather drooping bearing, contrast a lot with the erect stems.
The "wightii" maculata begonia does not need difficult treatments: a bright place is enough, without being exposed to direct sunlight; an acid soil, very draining and constantly humid, the water must therefore be supplied abundantly and frequently especially in summer.
The temperature in which it flourishes is between 15 and 25 ° C.
Coconut fiber and Begonia maculata, a couple that breaks out!
