Begonia 'Arabian Sunset'
How to care for Begonia
Begonia needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Begonia may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.
Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Select your region to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Begonia in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Begonia after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
My mother had a begonia when I was growing up, so I think it was just rather commonplace to me. Recently I’ve seen such a variety, I no longer see them as commonplace. This Arabian Sunset Begonia is special, though. The leaves are deep green on top, while the underside and stems are a beautiful roses terra cotta hue. When light shines on it, it is amazing. I live in Arizona where the sunsets are gorgeous; Bethany’s colors rival those of the sunsets. I haven’t had her long enough to know about growth rate or if she’s a survivor, but if you’re looking to fill your space with pulchritude, ArabianSunset Begonia may be the ticket.
