The type specimen of this species was purchased from a flower market in Taiwan! It occurs in Thai Nguyen Province, Vietnam, but may also grow elsewhere in Northern Vietnam. It is a very attractive Begonia, with silver palmate leaf markings. New leaves come out pink-purple, and then darken as the leaf matures, to puprle-brown. Leaves are covered in short stiff hairs. It is a slower growing species, and appreciated good drainage and regular (but weak/dilute) fertilizer.
Available plants are well rooted in 2″ pots. They will be shipped potted. The last photo is representative of the size plant you will receive.
