Begonia maculata (polka dot begonia)
Decorative houseplant with narrow green leaves dramatically marked with white spots. The contrasting undersides of the leaves can vary from red to purple.
Maintenance: Prefers free draining potting mix. Providing bright, indirect light will promote strong growth but avoid direct sunlight as it can burn the leaves. Prune twice a year to maintain a healthy habit and a compact growth.
Watering: Water when soil feels dry or plant starts to droop. Keep soil moist but not wet, watering more in summer and less in winter.
