About Hiemalis Begonia

They're native to tropical regions around the world, but are now found in homes in cold climates as well. Their taxonomy is far more complex than other plants, with species belonging to different cultivar groups. They contain oxalic acid, so be sure to keep them out of reach in homes with pets or children! ⚠️

Tends to wilt/ a few flowers and leaves will turn brown. However the plant continues to grow and put out more flowers. Do not underwater, this plant enjoys lots of water but be certain to have drainage holes. A very pretty plant and easy to care for, water once or twice a week. The plant is hardy and I’ve personally forgotten to water it before, but it was perfectly okay after being watered again.
