**Begonia natunaensis** is a beautiful and relatively rare species of Begonia. Here are some care tips to help it thrive:

### Light
- **Indirect Light**: Begonia natunaensis prefers bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves.
- **Low Light Tolerance**: It can tolerate lower light conditions but may not thrive or bloom as well.

### Watering
- **Consistent Moisture**: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings.
- **Avoid Overwatering**: Overwatering can lead to root rot. Ensure the pot has good drainage.

### Humidity
- **High Humidity**: This Begonia thrives in high humidity environments. Aim for humidity levels of 50% or higher.
- **Humidity Solutions**: Use a humidifier, place the pot on a tray of wet pebbles, or mist the plant regularly.

### Temperature
- **Warm Temperatures**: Ideal temperatures range between 60-75°F (15-24°C). Avoid cold drafts and sudden temperature changes.

### Soil
- **Well-Draining Soil**: Use a light, well-draining potting mix. A mix of peat, perlite, and potting soil works well.
- **Acidic to Neutral pH**: Aim for a soil pH of 5.5 to 6.5.

### Fertilization
- **Balanced Fertilizer**: Feed with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer).
- **Avoid Over-Fertilizing**: Too much fertilizer can harm the plant.

### Pruning and Maintenance
- **Remove Dead Leaves**: Regularly remove dead or yellowing leaves to encourage new growth.
- **Control Growth**: Prune to control the shape and size of the plant as needed.

### Repotting
- **Repot Annually**: Repot once a year in the spring to refresh the soil and provide more space for growth.
- **Choose the Right Pot**: Use a pot that is only slightly larger than the current one to prevent overwatering.

### Pests and Diseases
- **Watch for Pests**: Common pests include aphids, mealybugs, and spider mites. Treat infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
- **Prevent Diseases**: Good air circulation and proper watering practices help prevent fungal diseases like powdery mildew and root rot.

By following these care tips, your Begonia natunaensis should thrive and add beauty to your indoor plant collection.
