Begonia maculata, the Brazilian discovered by an Italian!

The Begonia maculata, in its variety "Wightii", is a perennial discovery in 1820 in Brazil by an Italian researcher. Presents erect stems that, in nature, grow up to 1 meter in height. The particularity that immediately jumps to the eye are the leaves, an olive-green color heavily spotted with white in the upper part and reddish in the lower part, with a shape that can remember that of the wings of an angel.
It is part of the begoniaceae, and is perhaps the most peculiar of the species thanks to its decidedly unusual coloring and to the drooping bearing of the leaves in contrast with the upright arrangement of the stems.
From late winter to early spring the spotted Begonia produces groups of flowers of ivory color. In short, it is a tropical plant that will amaze anyone with its very special appearance!

Cures to cultivate this particular Begonia plant are not difficult: in a luminous position, without direct sunlight that could ruin the beauty of the leaves. It requires an acid soil, better if draining enough, and constantly moist; the water must therefore be supplied whenever the soil is almost dry. The ideal temperature for this begoniacea is between 15 and 20 ° C and it is advisable to fertilize from late spring to early summer with balanced fertilizer for green plants or flowering plants.
