Begonia 'Bunchii' (Updated 2021)


Begonia 'Bunchii' is also known as: Begonia x erythrophylla commonly known as Lettuce Leaf Begonia or Curly Beefsteak Begonia.

It has a Beefsteak Begonia characteristics but more on the frills & scallops at the leaf edges. The foliage is very thick and succulent. It does turn slightly brown in color when exposed more to the sunlight but mostly the foliage is in dark glossy green.

This particular begonia is growing in a sphagnum moss medium - I had not disturbed or plan to replant it as new rhizomes are growing well from this medium. I have been keeping the medium slightly moist without over watering it.

Other than that, this particular one seemed to be looking hardy and strong ever since I had purchased it (Feb 2020). So far - it has been growing very well.
