If you are looking for a plant with a special leaf pattern, Begonia masoniana Rock is your plant! The dark red leaf markings give this plant a unique appearance! Or well, unique... He looks a lot like his big brother Begonia masoniana Mountain ®. In addition to the leaf pattern, the Begonia masoniana Rock ® has hairs on the leaf, which provide a shine to the leaf. The difference with its big brother Begonia Mountain ® is the size of the leaves and petioles. The Begonia Rock ® remains a smaller plant with smaller leaves.
The Begonia masoniana Rock ® prefers a place with bright, indirect light. Too much direct sunlight can cause the leaves to burn. It is also important to keep the potting soil slightly moist.
