Beauty but higher needs

I’ve experienced a tendency to crisp at the slightest humidity drop. Such gorgeous color it’s worth the drama.

A beautiful splash of color

I planted this one in my larger terrarium. It really seems to love the higher humidity it gets there and is thriving. I would definitely recommend this plant especially for larger terrarium builds.

Shirt sleeves

Close friend of mine recently bought this and is even more beautiful in person. I can't wait to receive mine.

Gorgeous long-lived plant

This is a fabulous slow growing begonia. It took more than 5 years to fill a 5 inch pot but it was worth it. It always wins prizes at flower shows. In my growing conditions the colour is more silvery green with flashes of pink. I love the colouring.
