Begonia goldingiana is a species that is believed to be extinct in the wild! Original specimen was collected from rocky outcrops of the Atlantic forests of Brazil. Named after Jack Golding who was an integral part of the American Begonia Society before he passed in 2009.
This Begonia has leaves that are covered in fine hairs like felt that helps slow water loss from the leaves and will rub off if handled too much. This Begonia likes to be dry to be sure not to over water!
Begonias enjoy lots of bright indirect light, but no direct sun. These can grow in artificial light like fluorescent, although experiences vary. Let the top of the soil dry before watering again. They enjoy a good soak, but need to dry out mostly between watering. They like warmer temperatures and should not be subjected to under 60 degrees. Although Begonias like humidity, they do not like being misted. Because of their textured surface, molds and mildew can form if the plant leaves are overly wet.
General Begonia Care Tips:
Light: Foliage Begonias prefer bright, indirect sunlight, whereas blooming begonias’ light needs vary.
Water: Begonias prefer moist but not soggy soil so make sure the soil and pot are well draining.
Fertilizer: Feed once a month during the growing season with a diluted liquid fertilizer.
