Cane Begonia - 'Pink Rubra' - Part 1


I must say that this particular one falls into a hardy category of Cane Begonia, also the ID seems to be a little misleading - I can only guess that this could be an identified cultivar which may have been cultivated throughout the years without any names attached to it - or simply put, it can just be identified as a Pink Flowered Cane Begonia.
I must say that this particular one is quite robust when comes to flowering - again also depends on the right conditions, especially it needs to be heavily fertilized for it to bloom - otherwise, it would just display as a common looking Cane Begonia.

One unique characteristics are the fading spots on the leaves, similar like the Maculata Albopicta - these speckles do appear to be disappearing when the inflorescence appears.

However, these spotted Cane Begonia appears to be more subtle with speckles with fading dots when exposed to bright sunlight - the dots are more visible when placed in more shaded environment.

The Leaves appears to Fully Green in Full Sun and the plus point is that these will start blooming in that condition - the Key Identification of this particular Cane Begonia is this one has pinkish inflorescent.

Another features to note are the slight orange tinge in coloration in appearance at the frills of the leaves, the leaves does appear to have some edge like features that layer with some warm tones. It may be some parentage features based on what hybrid mix it may have be cultivated.

Basic Plant Care as similar like most Cane Begonias - this one can be considered a hardy type.



Other matters are very much similar with the general information about Cane Begonias.
