Begonia polliloensis is a moderately slow grower but does well in a vivarium. Its leaves are its selling point; they are incredibly unique, even amongst the Begonias. The leaves range in color from green to an orange / bronze. Begonia polliloensis does well in bright, indirect light and moderate to high humidity. It prefers some airflow. Moist soil and sphagnum moss are helpful for rooting this species. Cuttings may be difficult to root. Please be aware cuttings of this plant are fragile and need high humidity.
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.
