Common name: Veined Begonia
Special Notes: This easy to grow Begonia has beautiful white flowers with a wonderful spicy fragrance. Thick succulent leaves are covered with white fuzz. From the wet areas of eastern Brazil, it is more tolerant of dryness and temperature changes than many other Begonias. Average room temperatures are adequate. Best with bright indirect light and watered when soil dries. Does not require extra humidity. Fertilize lightly once or twice a month.
