#PlantMail - New #Begonia Beleaf ๐ŸŒฟโค๏ธ

So, I mentioned in another post that one of my Begonia Beleafs almost completely dried out. I contacted the store and mentioned that perhaps whis was because of the trip from their store (in another state) to my home. I am not sure about this, so I did *not* ask for another plant - just for tips on how to care for her, but she was in bad shape.

They were extremely helpful (If you're in Brazil, shout out to Nordic Green!) and one day later offered me of their own will to send me a new plant - with a bonus! I had bought a small specimen before, and they only had new ones in medium size.

Soo... meet Patricia! I'm BAFFLED, man! She's freaking AWESOME!!!
#Greggers have helped me with some tips about caring for her but I won't mess with her after a long trip just yet, I'll just let her be for now. The good news is she came in the same size of pot as the last one (5'') but is bigger, and I learned that Begonias like to be a little tight.

I'll do everything to make sure THIS ONE thrives. She's GORGEOUS!!!

I have one of these and babbby when I sat they call out for water ๐Ÿ’ฆ they fall out๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฆ. Very very dramatic. I have mine under a grow light. I typically water ๐Ÿ’ฆ about every 5-7 days. Let it fall out so you will know
@Plantmumvirgin yes, I donโ€™t water them as frequently as my others. They do lose a lot of leaves and do not take water directly on the leaves well. But mine is growing well so far. I donโ€™t have a grow light but my room takes a lot of bright indirect light throughout the the day. Hereโ€™s a current pic of her in her new placement
(Iโ€™m alll set to take her and move her to another spot if the doesnโ€™t like this one ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ˜† currently testing)
@SportyWhiskfern thank you! We here at home are just as stunned as you. Sheโ€™s beautiful!
@Gustavo Sheโ€™s beautiful!๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ™Œโค๏ธ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒฑ
