Polka Dot Plant - Begonia Maculata
The Polka Dot Plant, also known as Begonia Maculata, is a beautiful and versatile houseplant that is characterized by its round, spotted leaves in shades of green, silver and red. This plant is known for its low maintenance and can grow up to 2-3 feet tall and wide. The leaves are typically 2-3 inches in diameter and are usually located on long petioles that arise from a central rosette. The Polka Dot Plant blooms in late spring to early summer, producing small clusters of pink, white or red flowers that add an extra touch of color to the plant.
- Light: The Polka Dot Plant prefers bright, indirect light but can also tolerate some low light. Keep away from direct sun which may scorch the leaves.
- Water: Allow the soil to dry out between watering, but be careful not to overwater, as this can cause root rot. Water only when the top inch of soil is dry.
- Humidity: The plant thrives in higher humidity, so it is important to mist regularly or place the plant near a humidifier.
- Soil: The Polka Dot Plant prefers a well-draining, moist soil mixture that is rich in organic matter.
- Fertilizer: Fertilize once a month with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer during the growing season.
- Pruning: Prune the plant regularly to promote bushy growth and remove yellow or brown leaves.
- Pests: Watch out for common indoor plant pests such as spider mites, mealybugs, and scale insects and treat immediately with a pesticide.
