There is a lot of diversity within just one type of begonia. They’re going to trend because they have all these different shapes, leaf shapes, leaf sizes, patterns, and colors. Some of them actually are metallic. It’s like a light metallic, kinda of like aluminum foil, that reflects light. You notice it best when they’re in direct sunlight.
It’s best to give them as much sunlight as you can. They can tolerate maybe about half a day’s worth of sun, and then the rest of it bright, indirect light or shade. They come in different wacky shapes and sizes to complement your lifestyle or your decor needs. As a bonus, they do flower about once a year. The showier the leaves, the less exciting the flowers are. They’re usually very tiny, but they’re colorful—usually white, pink, a cream color, or red. They’re really exciting plants.
