Mountain Orchids


Begonia pendula (brown form)

This, the "brown form", is the prettiest color form of this beautiful Sarawak/Borneo species.  It bears strikingly brown-green colored leaves splashed with metallic silver.  Its growth habit is initially rather "open" with fuzzy & brittle stems zig-zagging across or down the media.  in nature, it cascades down limestone rock surfaces.   

So far, it has responded well using the almost-closed terrarium type of culture, with careful watering, that seems to suit many other rhizomatous species - just don't forget it has a penchant for growing on/over limestone rock surfaces - thus you may or may not need to include that in your mix.

Offered here are division-grown plants in 3" pots.
