Medusa, the Black Mamba Begonia
Meet Medusa. Lore lists her as full of rage but look at her straight on and you’ll see she’s a protector, fearsome and beloved. Just be sure she reads truth when she looks you in the eye or she might laugh and turn you to stone…
We recommend planting this plug in our regular potting soil.
This plant ships as a 1″ fully rooted starter plant, as shown in the second photo. It will come wrapped in moss and tucked in a growers pot for safety. The terra cotta pot with the mature plant, shown in the first photo, is not included.
If you order multiple plants, we put them together in one pot so they stay moist and insulated. If you think we haven’t sent the full order, please take out the plants from the pot first to count them.
- Let the very top of the soil dry to the touch before watering.
- The more light received, the more vibrant the foliage.
- Prune old growth in late winter/early spring for a bushier shape if your plant feels too leggy.
- This plant is toxic to humans and pets.
