Begonia malachosticta is an uncommon Malasia - Borneo endemic Angelwing-type species which does best in reasonably humid locations such as in int-warm greeenhouses or larger terrariums. Because of its humidity requirements, it is not reccommendable as a windowsill plant.
The foliage on a well grown Begonia malachosticta is stunning. It is a beautiful blend of greens with a wonderfull sheen. Adding to this is an adornment of evenly spaced, raised, silvery pink polka dots.
Husky young plant in 2 1/2 - 3" pot.
