Begonia ‘Jive’ is a compact, full variety featuring medium-sized chartreuse leaves with wavy edges that are embellished with chocolate brown specks. The leaf edges are lined with tiny, white hairs. Light pink flowers are displayed on stems above the foliage.
Begonias grow best in well-drained, humus-rich soil with moderate water. They prefer high humidity and indirect sunlight. Apply a slow-release fertilizer sparingly in spring. This makes a beautiful accent plant for a border or container, but is primarily used as a houseplant. Protect from freezing temperatures!
