Begonia pavonina "Green Form"
Begonia pavonina hails from Malaysia. This is the green form, which is much more rare, and highly coveted. It is a moderate growing species of Begonia that is highly prized for its green / turquoise reflective dorsal coloration. If under the proper lighting, this Begonia can look neon! We only recommend growing this species in a greenhouse or terrarium. It does well in moderate, indirect light and high humidity, and appreciates some airflow. 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.
