What type of Begonia?

Posted by hem_krish (My Page) on

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?

RE: What type of Begonia?

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.
