Beg. amphioxus

(Begonia amphioxus) Very exotic species!  Tiny, shrub-like grower with tender stems and narrow, pointed, green leaves with maroon spotting.  Greenish flowers.  Very unusual and collectible.  Requires high humidity, so does best in a terrarium.  Not for the novice grower.

Beg. amphioxus

Average Rating 5 out of 5

Cute weirdo!

Despite the warning "Not for the novice grower", this one is a happy and fast grower in my terrarium. I keep cutting it down and now have several pots of this polka dot thing. Add a lot of visual interest. I highly recommend this species.

Beautifully bizarre

If you like strange looking plants, this is one of the best. It grows like a cane begonia in miniature. Despite its reputation for being difficult, I found this one to be very undemanding. I keep mine potted inside a warden case (to give it the humidity it requires) under an LED shoplight. It propagates easily too!

Funky Begonia

These guys NEED a lot of humidity! Once you figure out kind of what they like, they grow super super fast! I want another one but i don’t need it! Any begonia lover need one of these in their collection

Despite being a needy plant, it arrived intact and in great condition. Would buy again if I didn't already have one!

I love this little begonia, so much that I am getting another. Tip for the new grower: Don't mess around, get it in a terrarium asap. I took my time getting it into a terrarium because I was mesmerized by it's beauty. That did cause it to drop a few leaves, but it is still going strong.
