Begonia ulmifolia is a bushy, green Begonia that grows moderately slowly and is native to South America, particularly French Guiana and Brazil. It has bright green leaves with white trichomes edges on top. It blooms often; white flowers. It does well in moderate, indirect light and high humidity. It requires more airflow than most to be healthy. Moist soil and sphagnum moss are helpful for rooting this species. Do not let it sit in water, and do not let water collect on the leaves. It roots slowly compared to many other Begonia.
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.
