|The cultivar, 'Caravan', has attractive foliage with leaves that feature an emerald midrib. The flowers are white and insignificant. Stemming is upright and in a zig-zag fashion between the nodes. This plant grows best in filtered light but can take some sun in winter. Soil should ideally be moist. Begonias grow very well in peat-based compost also. Grows best with humidity and warm weather. Pinching tips and pruning outer stems in the growing season gives a bushier plant, good for hanging. Sudden temperature change causes leaves to drop.
