  • Description
  • Begonia chingipengii resembles begonia trichochila but is distinguished by the variegated leaves with light green veins and midrib contrasting with the dark green adaxial surface and maroon abaxial surface. It bears a thick coat of hairs on the underside of its leaves and on its petioles to break the flow of air around the stomata and thus reducing the loss of water through transpiration.

    Secret of success:
    - Prefer moderate amount of sunlight.
    - Requires well-drained soil.
    - Let the soil dry out between watering.
    - Moderate humidity.
    - Fertilise lightly during the growing season.

    Pot diameter: 13cm
    Plant height: 35cm (incl. pot height)

  • Potting soil should be kept moist, but not wet. Of course, there are always exceptions — succulents, and other thick-leafed plants do best when the soil dries out between watering. If the soil is kept too dry or too damp the plant’s roots will begin to die, which can lead to inadequate growth or even death of the plant.
