No, it’s not sick… This begonia is just wearing an itsy bitsy teeny-weeny white and greeny polka dot bikini!
The Begonia Maculata is one of the most popular begonias for its darling polka dots and angel wing shaped foliage. Similar to calatheas, this plant requires high humidity so prep your humidifier or place it in the bathroom!
Nursery Pot Disclaimer: The nursery pot your plant arrives in is crucial to proper water drainage. To prevent overwatering and eventually root rot we recommend leaving your plant in the nursery pot, and if desired find a similar size decorative pot to place your nursery pot in.

Light: Medium to bright indirect light.
Water: Keep the soil continuously moist, but not wet. Water routinely and ensure proper water drainage in order to avoid root rot.
