Definitely not your grandmothers Begonia, the Tiger is a real eye-catcher. Noted for its ornate foliage, Begonia Tiger Paws' (Eyelash Begonia) is an evergreen, rhizomatous perennial mostly grown for its striking foliage of small, chocolate to bronze-red leaves, adorned with bright green, paw-like markings. The leaves have white eyelash-like hairs on their edges, hence the common name.
Prefers partial shade and organically rich, moist and well rained soil. Best in high humidity especially during growing period. Allow soil to dry out between watering and watch for overwatering which can cause fungal diseases or rot. Remove dead leaves and prune outer stems in growing season for a bushier plant.
Botanical name: Begonia Tiger
This plant comes in a standard 130mm diameter plastic pot.
