Begonia rostrata


This delicate looking species is from Logo, Tome, on the coast of Guinea.  It is a tuberous species that like many tuberous species, is not overly tolerant of wet conditions.  I let it the soil go dry between waterings by watering only about half as often as my rhizomatous species.  It still requires high humidity I think, although I’m not sure how high as I’ve not tried it in an open air environment.  It can reach over 12″, but would likely need something to lean on as its stem is not all that supportive.  The leaves are small, around an inch, two at the largest.  Each of the white spots has a small hair protruding from its center.

Seeds are mailed in folded perm paper in 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.
