If you're looking for a unique houseplant with exotic, fleshy foliage, the Begonia listada is a great choice. Pronounced foliage emerges from the soil in clusters of arrowhead-shaped awesomeness. From afar, the foliage of the Begonia listada resembled a caladium or even a small elephant ear, but upon closer inspection, you can tell it's 100% begonia. The vibrant stripe of white down the middle of each leaf is reminiscent of a lightning bolt against a dark summer sky.
To have the most success growing your Begonia listada, make sure your area is high in humidity and stays a nice toasty temperature. Lack of humidity and warmth can cause rot and an otherwise unhappy-looking plant. Begonia listada are perfect for use in terrariums or mini-greenhouses.
