Begonia Albopicto Silver

Begonia Albopicto Silver Care Guide


Begonia Albopicta Silver prefers bright, indirect light. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, as this can scorch its leaves. In lower light conditions, the plant may grow more slowly and lose its vibrant coloration.


Water Begonia Albopicta Silver when the top inch of the soil feels dry to the touch. Use room temperature water and water directly onto the soil, avoiding wetting the leaves to prevent fungal diseases. Ensure that the pot has good drainage to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot.


Begonia Albopicta Silver thrives in high humidity levels between 50-60%. Maintain humidity by using a humidifier, grouping plants together, or placing the pot on a tray filled with pebbles and water. Regular misting can also help increase humidity levels.


Keep Begonia Albopicta Silver in a warm environment with temperatures between 65-75°F (18-24°C) during the day and slightly cooler at night. Protect it from drafts and sudden temperature changes.


Feed Begonia Albopicta Silver with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Use a fertilizer that is higher in phosphorus to promote healthy growth and vibrant foliage. Avoid fertilizing during the winter months when growth slows down.


Begonia Albopicta Silver is considered mildly toxic to pets and humans if ingested. It contains oxalic acid, which can cause irritation and discomfort. Keep the plant out of reach of children and pets, and wash your hands after handling the plant.

Additional Care Information

Use a well-draining, peat-based potting mix to ensure good aeration and prevent waterlogging. Rotate the plant regularly to ensure even growth and prevent it from leaning towards the light source. Remove any yellow or damaged leaves promptly to maintain the plant's health and appearance.


Yellow Leaves: Yellowing leaves may indicate overwatering, underwatering, or low humidity. Adjust your watering routine, check the soil moisture, and increase humidity levels. Brown Leaf Tips: Brown or crispy leaf tips can be caused by dry air, inconsistent watering, or excess fertilizer salts. Maintain proper humidity levels, adjust your watering routine, and flush the soil periodically to remove excess salts. Drooping Leaves: Drooping leaves can be a sign of underwatering, overwatering, or stress due to temperature fluctuations. Ensure proper watering and stable environmental conditions to help the plant recover.
