Begonia Pteridiformis Spotted

While not all plant lovers are begonia lovers, it's hard to deny the cool-factor of the Begonia Pteridiformis. There are two forms of this species that are commonly found in circulation: ‘red form’ with dark green leaves and red stems and green, with light green spotted leaves. The spotted green form (pictured) is dotted with white spots and has a single hair growing out of each dot.

It requires a higher ambient humidity (70-80%) and is considered a compact growing making it a perfect choice for terrariums or greenhouses.

Fun Fact: It is named for the unique arrangement of leaves that resemble a fern (Pteridi) at a quick glance.

Alocasia Brancifolia

Being a hybrid of Philodendron Xanadu and Alocasia Zebrina, the Alocasia Brancifolia has got it all with its lobed leaves and super striped petioles and stem!

Aim to keep the soil consistently moist, but not overly saturated. Water the plant when the top inch of the soil feels dry, adjusting the frequency based on the surrounding temperature and required high humidity.

It's important to note that Alocasia Brancifolia is toxic if ingested, so keep it out of reach of curious pets or children.
