Begonia cathayana (orange flowers)

This form of Begonia cathayana is the orange-flowered one. This one bears foliage of a deep purple-green with a lighter central band/ring of silver-green.  The leaf base color can vary a bit with temp/light/fertilization - but it has a wonderful garnet red hairs that almost glow when young and leaves are fresh!   

 It seems to do well with good humidity so it may prove to do its best when grown under-glass (terrarium) - time will tell. 

Offered here as husky young plants in 3" pots.
