Plants look after us if we look after them
The Begonia is a two-faced plant, as well as being a universal and versatile hit. Whether you enjoy cheerful flowers or take pleasure in a sturdy leaf with intense colours and beautiful patterns, there is always a begonia to satisfy your taste! Some varieties are grown for their beautiful flowers, whilst others for their truly amazing leaves. Before the Begonia was discovered as the ideal houseplant, it could be found in the warm, humid regions of New Guinea, southern Africa and the Andes. Our grower advises (J. & P. Ten Have): “Water the begonia twice a week and ensure the soil remains humid.” Decorum also has Begonia's for outside, the Begonia Belove and the Betulia.
