My focus here is to show their unique Polka Dot features on their Foliage Structure difference in comparison with each other. Also some tips on how I care for them which I explain in my video.
Tip 1: Always put a support - a stick or pole for the Cane Begonia support as it won't break under it's own weight.
Tip 2: Plant some thirsty plant together to regulate the over-watering problem as to deter root rot or over-feeding (fertilizer) problem.
Tip 3: Keep spare plants by taking cutting and propagating them in case the plant suddenly dies.
