About Cane Begonia

There are over 2,000 species of Begonia, and horticulturalists have created even more varities by cultivating all sorts of shapes and colors! 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! ⚠️

This is my highest performer by far. Less than a foot away from a west facing window and gets filtered direct sun for most of the day. About a foot away from a humidifier. I’ve had this for maybe 6 months and I’ve chopped it several times because it likes to spread out. Very rewarding plant. Cuttings root easily in water.
