Begonia ignita


This Begonia was newly described in 2017 and has only recently been available in cultivation. It is on the smaller side, staying under 7″.   It’s an easy keeper that does best in terrarium conditions. The leaves are mottled with pale green, and with age, the green migrates to the leaf edges and creates a prominent green edging. The leaf interior darkens with age, to dark maroon, almost black. Male flowers are bright orange and female flowers are pink. There is also another form of ignita, which lacks the distinctive maroon foliage but possesses only green.  The form available here is the maroon form.

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