Begonia quadrialata subsp. nimbaensis
Begonia quadrialata subsp. nimbaensis is a dwarf, rhizomatous species of Begonia from Africa. It has red stems / venation and lime green leaves that are covered in small trichomes. It is prized for its rarity in the USA hobby. It does well in moderate, indirect light and moderate to 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.
