Eyelash Begonia?

Maddolyn(7)July 24, 2013

A friend gave me three leaf cuttings from a plant she didn't really know the name of. I planted the leaves and did some research to see if I can find out what plant species it is. Maybe an Eyelash Begonia?

The thing is (I'm fairly new to Begonia's), my plant has grown so much from the original three leaves. It is growing over the edge of its pot and I'm not sure if I should repot it?

Any advice will be most appreciated. Thank You So Much.

Close enough. Anything with bowerae in it is supposed to be "eyelash" begonia (little hairs along the edges) and this looks like it has a lot of bowerae in its lineage.

There are a ton of hybrids with lots of names. 'Kit Kat' and 'Tiger Kitten' are two very popular ones. Yours reminds me of 'Chantilly Lace'.

Here is a begonia I got that has the name of 'Dottie's Eyelashes'. It is medium sized leaves and has some "eyelashes" but don't see a lot of bowerae in it.
