Product info

Begonia partita 'S' originates in South Africa. The small maple-like leaves are very appealing. The plant's appearance is reminiscent of a bonsai tree. When placing it in a terrarium the bonsai shape is lost, because this plant is not easily pruned. Furthermore this begonia grows with shorter stalks at higher humidities.

Plant care

This African Begonia partita 'S' likes warmth and high humidity. When watering one needs not worry too much about keeping the soil slightly moist like with other Begonias; the caudex and thickened leaf stalks will store the water anyway.
