Begonia panasoffkee is a fast, growing hybrid by Michelson in 1978. It is a fun, fast growing species in a terrarium. Its leaves are a beautiful, deep green on top with a dark red bottom. It is similar to withlacoochee but has glaucous leaves. It does well in bright, indirect light and high humidity. It does not require airflow to grow. Moist soil and sphagnum moss are helpful for rooting this species. It roots quickly compared to many other Begonia. Cuttings shipped bareroot with slightly moist Sphagnum moss in plastic. Rooted specimens ship in pot or bareroot / plug depending on conditions and location.
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.
