The Begonia Tamaya is a stunning plant. Not only does this plant have the recognizable dots on the leaf, the Begonia Tamaya also flowers regularly. Clusters of white to light pink flowers appear that also smell wonderful!
Originally the Begonia Tamaya is found Central and South America and especially in Mexico. There are a huge number of different Begonia with the most varied colors and patterns on the leaves. Begonia is usually a plant that is easy to care for and is not high demanding.
The Begonia Tamaya likes a bit of water. The soil can therefore remain slightly moist between the waterings. As with all plants, you must ensure that there is never too much water left in the pot. If you give the plant water once a week, this should suffice. Of course you can check the soil in between. In addition, the Begonia Tamaya likes to be in a place with lots of light, but make sure that no full sun hits the leaves. This will not do the plant any good. Finally, it is important to keep the humidity a little higher. If the air is too dry, the leaves can dry out and shrivel up. To avoid this you can mist the Begonia Tamaya every now and then with a sprayer.
Is the Begonia Tamaya getting a bit too big for you, or do you enjoy making cuttings? The Begonia Tamaya is excellent for this. Cut a piece off the plant that has a stalk and some leaves attached to it. You can remove the lower leaves from the cutting. Then you put it in the water, or directly in the ground. Over time, roots will develop and the cutting will continue to develop. How easy does that sound!
