Begonia burkilii "Silver Form"
Begonia burkillii is beautiful, underrated Indian species that is rhizomatous and clumping in nature. This form is often called Silver Edge. This cultivar has bright, silver-green leaves that are streaked with mint green centers. It does well in bright, indirect light and high humidity. It is very hardy, but breaks and fragments easily. Moist soil and sphagnum moss are helpful for rooting this species.
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.
