Begonia Copper Sunset
Begonia 'Copper Sunset' is a small-leaved, rhizomatous begonia. It is a cross of The Mexican species bowerae var. nigramarga with an Australian hybrid 'Angel Glow'. It has bright red to orange to green leaves with dark striations. It has a very nice spikey pattern and a compact growth habit. This is a miniature Begonia and a moderate growing species. It does well in moderate, indirect light and high humidity. 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.
