Mountain Orchids


Begonia carrieae

This beautiful coarse-leaved hairy species is from Chiapas state, in Mexico.  It prefers some humidity but is NOT a terrarium subject.  It eventually will form broad 8" dia. leaves which later produce 12” high scapes of large white flowers.  From my experience, it does not reproduce from leaf cuttings, though stem cuttings will work.

These are nice size young plants currently in 3" pots.
