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 it’s coloration, taking on red leaf venation in some conditions, and other times with more silvery venation. It can get rather large, around 16″.

The last photo is representative of the plants available. They are well rooted and shipped meticulously in their pots.
