One of the finest house plants of all, an Elephant's Ear Begonia not only has large, well-formed leaves but also produces pretty flowers for a large part of the summer.

The tops of the leaves are a rich, glossy green with red veins and the undersides are reddish. They are thickly covered with short white hairs.

The plant comes from Brazil so it is used to warm, humid conditions. It needs to be kept at above 16°C at all times and will soon suffer if the temperature goes below 13°C

Elephant’s Ear Begonia does well in a peat-based compost but will also thrive in a potting mix made up of an equal-parts mix of leaf mould and soil-based compost. To ensure that the compost is well-drained, put a 3cm (1in) layer of flower pot shards in the bottom of the pot.

A mature specimen grows up to 1.2m (4ft) tall and can be nearly as wide. The stems are thick, and up to 90cm (3ft) long. On them grow the leaves, which are shaped — as the plant’s name suggests — like elephants’ ears. The tops of the leaves are a rich, glossy green with red veins and the undersides are reddish. They are thickly covered with short white hairs. Leaves grow from 15-25cm (6-10in) long and can be up to 15cm (6in) across.

We recommend the Australian made Munash Organics soil food & foliage spray or The Plant Runner plant food or neem oil to keep you plants happy and healthy!
