What type of Begonia?

hem_krishFebruary 24, 2010

Hi,

I recently bought a Begonia and would love to know its name and type (rhizomatous/fibrous etc). I bought it with some crispy brown edges on leaves which have gotten worse in the two days that its been at my home. I live in India and the air here is pretty dry. Could the lack of humidity be the culprit? From Houseplants

That is either Silver Jewel or imperialis. You are so correct on the humidity being the culprit for dried edges on the leaves. Put a plastic lid over it and the new leaves should enjoy the extra humidity.
