Begonia Strawberry Creme

jebfarmJanuary 11, 2013

Here is a picture of my Begonia Strawberry Creme - cream? (I've found it spelled both ways) Because of information gleaned from the Begonia Forum it has thrived growing in an open gallon ziploc bag, under fluorescent lights, sitting on a heat mat kept at around 75 degrees. It is unusual and I really like it. The plant in the background is Pereskia aculeata Godseffiana - say that three times fast. The new growth is really vivid, thought you could use a little mid - winter color.
Any body out there want to talk begonias?

That is beautifully grown. It is a small growing rhizomatous and prefers a bit higher humidity, moderate light, and a tight pot. Well done! (btw spelling is correct)
