Begonia amphioxus is a rare, slower growing species of Begonia native to Asia. It has bright orange / red edges and is blotted with orange / red dots. It does well in moderate, indirect light and moderate to high humidity, but appreciates airflow. Moist soil and sphagnum moss are helpful for rooting this species. It is exceptionally slow to root compared to many other Begonia, and if too wet can rot easily. It is prized amongst many Begonia keepers.
All of our cuttings have adventitious, aerial roots. Our rooted specimens will have at least a few active roots and will be established plants. Our plants are grown in high humidity in terrariums and greenhouses, therefore may need acclimation to the average home humidity / environment. Please contact us for acclimation information if you are not planning to use this plant in a terrarium, greenhouse, or humid room.
