Bonnie, a Begonia 'Benigo', or Pink Polka Dot Begonia, is well known for its deep dark green leaves shaped like angel wings, splattered with bright pink dots. When she flowers, just like in the photos above, you'll be blessed with bright pink-white blooms.
One thing to note is that Bonnie can be a bit picky about light and water, so you better be ready for a new plant project! Don’t let that put you off though, because she's worth every second.
Bonnie, Begonia Benigo
Bonnie prefers bright indirect light to partial shade, without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight however would be welcomed.
If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:
- Minimal shadow = lower light
- Half shadow = indirect light
- Full shadow = direct sun
