Begonia brevirimosa 'Exotica'


Begonia brevirimosa 'Exotica' offers metallic-looking, bronze-green leaves with pink veining and pretty pink flowers.

Begonia brevirimosa 'Exotica' is an exciting rarity from the rain forests of New Guinea! Large, metallic-looking bronze-green leaves with bright pink veining can grow from 8 to 12 inches long on a shrub-like plant that can reach three feet tall. Pretty pink flowers can appear throughout the year. Very easy to grow given the right conditions: bright, indirect light, warmth between 16-30 degrees Celsius and good humidity. Let top two inches of soil dry out between watering. Over watering can lead to fungal issues and root rot. Awesome as a potted house plant.
