Strawberry begonias are houseplants that have trailing runners that look like strawberry plants.

Strawberry begonia’s botanical name is Saxifraga Stolonifera or Creeping Saxifrage and it is also commonly known as a Strawberry geranium.

Strawberry begonia plants are originally from Japan but have been popular with houseplant enthusiasts because of their colorful foliage.

Each leaf of the strawberry saxifrage plant has a red-colored underside and stems.

As the plants grow older, they sprout long and thin trailing runners that cluster and group into rounded leaves as they mature.

The clusters of leaves will produce small white flowers in late spring to early summer.

LightProvide your Strawberry Begonia with bright, indirect sunlight. A place near an East or West-facing window is ideal. Avoid direct sunlight as it will scorch the foliage and often creates holes in the leaves.

WaterProvide plenty of water for your Begonia during the spring and summer growth months. Water when the top 2 to 3 inches of soil is dry. Water until the moisture runs through the pot’s drainage holes. When watering, avoid pouring the water directly onto the leaves. Leaves with hairs on the surface hold moisture, which promotes fungal issues. Reduce water in the winter, providing just enough to keep the plant hydrated.

Humidity: Moderate to high humidity levels help the plant thrive. Average household humidity levels are acceptable, but homes with low humidity can supplement by placing a tray filled with pebbles and water under the plant’s drip tray.

Temperature: The Strawberry Begonia prefers cool temperatures. Keep your plant in temperatures between 50 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit (10 to 23.8 C). Avoid high heat as it stunts growth and affects the Begonia’s health.

Toxicity: Begonias are considered toxic to pets and humans, especially if the roots are ingested. Keep this plant away from pets and small children.

OriginStrawberry Begonia is a native of Eastern Asia, Western China, and Japan and is often found on shady cliffs and mossy rocks at low altitudes.
