Begonia ‘Red Planet’


This delightful hybrid Begonia has leaves that only reach 2″ in size, with many leaves staying smaller.  Younger plants will display red-green undertones with chocolate-purple mottling.  As the plants mature, the chocolate-purple becomes the more dominant color.  At the point the petiole attaches to the leaf, the color is red (which sometimes fades to yellow).  This plant can be grown mounted or potted, as a terrarium plant or house plant (keep out of direct sun and water frequently).  Due to the small leaf size, it is an easy Begonia to grow in a small pot.  If given room, it will form a small mound (maybe 8″ wide), but with regular clipping of leaves it can be easily molded to stay small.

Available plants are well rooted with at least eight leaves.  They will be shipped bare root.
