A beautiful begonia, with mixed parentage. It has shrub-type tendencies, and mallet cane tendencies despite its classification here as tuberous. It's very free-branching. It's a little difficult to overwinter indoors because of its humidity needs. A good candidate for a terrarium. Prone to powdery mildew, and total prevention is the best practice. Propagates well from tip cuttings, with greatest success in a moist, sterile medium. Every leaf node can branch or create basal growth, unlike canes, etc. Seems to enjoy outdoor summers...with morning sunlight. It has a moderate growth rate, and appreciates regular nutrient additions.
