Pale leaves??

Posted by none (My Page) on

I just got a bat wing begonia "wightii" in the mail, and it's leaves are very pale light green, almost yellow. It is supposed to be a very dark green color.

What could cause this, and how can I fix it?

Also, is it ok to give it some miracle grow to help it grow a little faster?

Sounds like it needs some fertilizer and some sun (start out in shade though).
