The betulia is related to the begonia, the plant that comes in a thousand and one varieties. The origins of this exuberant bloomer lie in the tropical rain forests of Asia, Africa and America. The betulia just loves light and is available in various cheerful colours. It can grow and flower both internally and externally, making the possibilities with this plant almost endless. The plant flowers better and longer if you regularly remove the dead flowers. And if you wish to get the best from your betulia, feed it some plant food every three weeks.
- Remove dead heads of flowers.
- Keep damp, compost must not dry out.
- Good light, but no bright sunlight.
- Apply fertiliser once a month.
