This just came in the mail, and I’m so amazed by this plant. It sprouts baby leaves on the mama leaf, it’s just so unique.
How to care for Piggyback Begonia
Piggyback Begonia needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.

Piggyback 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 Piggyback 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 Piggyback Begonia after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
