Begonia - mazae f nigricans (Updated 2021)


It has a firm sturdy foliage structure with almost black tones but tend to morph into green shades - varies in that difference on how much light it receives, and so if in good shade it will have more of green appearance with darker skeleton like veins feature of which one may think that it is a totally new hybrid.

Very similar to a Martin Mystery Begonia in the sense of hardiness, easy to care and without much fuss, however this is more like a miniature type where it won't grow very big and so care must be given like most begonia needs where it won't do well in overwatering or over feeding.

It is a rhizome begonia but with a tight compact structure on it's leaf formation.

This is how it appear to be when faced with too much direct hot sun on the leaves. They tend to show burns on the leaf surface with may not look so good for their display.
