Begonia scapigera is one of our personal favorites. It is a moderate growing species of Begonia native to Africa, specifically Cameroon. It is prized amongst collectors for its saucer-like leaves that are bright green with a red margin. It does well in moderate, indirect light and moderate to high humidity, but appreciates airflow. Moist soil and sphagnum moss are helpful for rooting this species. It is somewhat slow to root compared to many other Begonia, and can have very large leaves.
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.
