If you are looking for an unusual indoor plant that attracts attention then this head-turning begonia is the perfect choice. The silver spots on olive green leaves seem unreal but behold, it’s the magic spell of nature. This beauty also goes by the name of Angle wing plant.

Detailed Care Guide
Light: Bright indirect sunlight.
Water: Water twice a week. Never let the soil dry out.
Pet-friendly: Mildly toxic if ingested.
Humidity: This plant requires high humidity levels, preferably above 60%. Mist the leaves twice daily. If this sounds like a lot of work then invest in a humidifier or place the plant in a shallow tray of water and pebbles.
Temperature: Begonias like relatively warm temperatures. Above 65℉ is ideal.
Fertilizer: Since this is a flowering plant, feed every 2 weeks in the growing season for excellent blooms. Use a liquid fertilizer high in phosphorus and diluted to half strength.
Repotting: This plant grows best when its root bound which means that it's better not to repot until utterly necessary i.e., when the pot loses balance. Choose a pot not larger than 2 inches than the original. Regular houseplant mix is okay with relatively less perlite content.
Brown crispy Leaves: Underwatering your plant causes its leaves to turn brown from the edges and eventually become crispy. Begonias require two watering sessions per week. If this sounds like a lot of work then you can invest in a self watering pot. However if you are already giving enough water but the plant still doesn't seem happy then it needs more sunlight. Begonia maculata requires a lot of bright light to survive. Place the plant in front of a window.
