Begonia lukuana


A tuberous species from Taiwan! One of the few terrarium Begonias available in cultivation from this country.  Depending on light it expresses varying degrees of iridescence.  It can reach heights of 3′ but more often stays much smaller.  Abaxial leaf surfaces are a deep crimson.  Immature leaves tend to lose their spotting with time but sometimes retain smaller versions of them into maturity.  It’s an easy- growing species tolerant of drying out between waterings, and can be grown as a houseplant with care.

The last photo is representative of the plants available. They are robust plants in 4″ pots with many growth tips.
