Begonia - U578

This particular type of Begonia is commonly known as Star Begonia often identified as a Gryphon Begonia due to the majestic look of the foliage display. Alternatively it's also known as Pegasus Begonia.

It is easily identified with the Star Shaped big sized foliage - very much behaves like a rhizome begonia which I would consider a hardy plant especially when the plant grows well and had already established itself.

Just like any Begonia - their needs and care & cultivation is very much similar. 

I understand there are so many cultivar and hybrids from this particular type which is rather confusing as some of them do revert back to their parentage features given the growing conditions. Hence the identification purpose is very much challenging rather its more identified by begonia plant enthusiast seeking different variations and pattern rather than specific name & identification.

Here, I have manage to find those which I can verify and say that these are authentic and how I managed to care for them in the hot & humid climate in these tropical zones. Of course, there are a lot to learn and understand - but as for now, I'm contented with keeping these plants alive.
