Begonia mansoniana is a beautiful plant with bullate leaves and a brilliant dark pattern spreading in a "cross-like" pattern. This gives this species a common name of "iron cross". It is native to China and Vietnam. 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.
