Begonia cathayana ‘white flower’


This stunning species hails from China and possesses velvety leaves and a hardy constitution.  It looks rather delicate, but in the terrarium at least, has proven to be a vigorous grower with little care.  It blooms often, and the flowers are covered in red hairs.  The undersides of the leaves are bright reddish-pink and visible when viewed directly from the front due to the growth habit of the plant.  Somewhat versatile in its coloration, taking on red leaf venation in some conditions, and other times with more silvery venation. It can get rather large, around 16″.

Seeds are mailed in folded perm paper inside glassine envelopes and will contain 20+ seeds.  All seeds are inspected for size and robustness prior to mailing to ensure viability.  For more information about sowing seeds, click here.

International shipping is available on all seeds for no additional charge.  Shipping is a flat rate of $5 for domestic and international orders.

For domestic orders, if you purchase (non-seed) plants, I will ship everything together for a flat rate of $10.
