About Eyelash 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! ⚠️

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 Eyelash Begonia after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
This is my first begonia abs though I was hesitant, I’m thrilled at her progress. In a few months it’s grown from a handful of leaves to this bushy little creature. I love the “lashes” on the leaf perimeter abs the variegation on the stems too. It’s good at telling me when to water, her leaves sigh a little abs she soon perks up with a watering.
