Hi guys!

I really have something for the begonias with the huge leaves. I have begonia bunchii and really really like it now I want more isnt that the way it always goes? Anyway found a topic on here and some pictures of a Begonia called challenger with huge 2 foot leaves anybody know of any sources for this????

Thanks all,

It is offered occasionally on eBay. It gets very large and is easy to propagate by leaf cuttings.

Here is one I started from a leaf. I will try and post my biggest one later today.
