Begonia sp. (b05)

This Begonia species is another really pretty Chinese limestone region species.  It is rhizomatous and sports beautifully silver-marked smooth textured olive-green foliage with reddish undersides. It was originally obtained with only the designation "species b09".

As it is fairly new to me, my growing experience with it is somewhat limited. So far has responded very well to terrarium-type culture with an emphasis not to overwater. Additionally, I prefer to incorporate a small percentage of limestone chippings into the coarse growing mix.


Offered here as a young plant in 2 1/2" pot.
