Begonia cf. "U577" Dark

Begonia cf. "U577" is a species from Thailand, introduced into cultivation sometime in 2009.  It is an interesting species with showy DARK foliage, silver splashed central regions, and a creeping habit.  The plant seems to form a small rosette which sends out runner-like stems that root down as they grow - which also makes for easy propagation.  Clipping the tips back encourages the base rosette to get bushier.  

These are 95% quite likely to be the same as U577, however, I have yet to bloom and/or have their identity confirmed.  Until that time, one should continue to use:  Begonia cf. "U577" 

These are established plants, currently in 2 1/2" pots.
