Begonia U641 is a tuberous species that has green to brown leaves with bright, pastel green dots that almost appear to give off light. It does well in terrarium conditions, provided it is not too wet. It does well in moderate, indirect light and moderate humidity, around 70-90%. Moist soil and sphagnum moss are helpful for rooting this species. It roots slowly compared to many other Begonia. Cuttings shipped bareroot with slightly moist Sphagnum moss in plastic. Rooted specimens ship in pot or bareroot / plug depending on conditions and location.
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.
