Begonia prismatocarpa is a very small and good grower from the Ivory Coast / Cameroon. It can be grown completely epiphytically if desired, like bowerae and Maldanado. Its leaves are light green but it is known for it's stunning yellow-orange flowers. Begonia prismatocarpa 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. It roots quickly compared to many other Begonia. It flowers frequently.
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.
