Begonia 'Cracked Ice'
Begonia 'Cracked Ice' has elongated, dark green leaves that are covered in silver polkadots. The new growth emerge bright green before deepening in color, and the margins and undersides have a rosy red hue. This is an Angelwing Begonia, named for the shape of its leaves that look just like a pair of wings. It has an upright growth habit, forming bamboo-like canes, and, in time, produces clusters of bright pink flowers.
• Light: Bright, indirect light
• Water: Allow soil to dry moderately between waterings
• Considerations: Regular fertilization encourages blooms. Stake the plant as it grows to keep it upright.

Such a cool plant, arrived in perfect condition, so obsessed, put out a new leaf within a week!
I have ordered many plants from Pistil’s now and they always arrive quickly, in perfect condition and almost always start growing new leaves immediately after settling in. This begonia is no different, it’s so gorgeous and the spots are so vibrant, it’s honestly even prettier than I expected. As per usual, Pistil’s nursery has gone above and beyond
Lovely and healthy polka dot begonia. So excited to see this grow!
