The unusual leaf shape and coloring of the Pink Spotted Begonia (Begonia amphioxus) makes it an eye-catching and irresistible houseplant that you will not want to pass up. The lime-green leaves are flecked with cherry-red polka dots and ruffled edges, resembling the wings of an exotic butterfly more than the leaves of a houseplant. Provided a bright location, regular watering, and a bit of humidity, this Begonia wows plant newbies and enthusiasts alike. 

Best Locations For Growing Pink Spotted Begonia

Pink Spotted Begonia is not a plant that you will want to hide. Place this striking plant in the bright window of a bedroom or living room, or place among other houseplants to add color and texture. Begonias are toxic plants and should be placed out of reach of children and pets.

Pink Spotted Begonia Sunlight Requirements

Begonias do best when kept in bright, indirect light. Place Pink Spotted Begonia in front of an east- or north-facing window, or slightly away from a west- or south-facing window, protected from harmful direct sun rays. When Begonias are too far from a light source, they will stretch and become leggy, taking away from their full appearance. In too much light, the delicate leaves can become sunburned, losing their color and eventually drying up. 

Pink Spotted Begonia Care

Begonias are plants that prefer higher humidity. For best results, place Pink Spotted Begonia on a pebble tray or near a humidifier. Avoid directly misting the leaves of Begonias, however, as they are prone to powdery mildew and other foliar infections. Begonias prefer to be root-bound and should only need to be repotted every couple of years when they run out of room in their pots. 

Watering Pink Spotted Begonia

Water Pink Spotted Begonia once the top few inches have dried out, adding water until it flows out the bottom of the pot. Be sure to plant Begonias in peaty, well-draining soils and in a pot with drainage holes to avoid overwatering and root rot. Like many other plants, Begonias will wilt when they are both over- and underwatered. Always feel the soil before watering and avoid wetting the leaves. 

Feeding Pink Spotted Begonias

Add a balanced liquid houseplant fertilizer to Pink Spotted Begonias once a month through the growing season, in the spring and summer. Always follow directions when diluting fertilizer to avoid overfeeding, which can result in burned leaves and stunted growth. Begonias will not need fertilizer in the winter as they are not actively growing.

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
