Begonia 'Amber Love'



I must say that this particular begonia appears to be a new version recently been introduced in the last season. It made a popular appearance in most nurseries however many are unable to give a proper plant care details. Once of the best description I can mention which is worth observing are the colors. If you could only see them in full black - it would definitely fall into the Black Velvet Begonia category especially the appearance the Begonia "Bethlehem Star" except the later is in glossy iridescent bluish black.

Truth to be told, just as it made its arrival, after few months - it had started showing its sensitivity where it doesn't weather the storm in lowland hot climate zone - nothing similar like the famous Martin Mystery. This particular one - as I highly suspect fall into the highland climate zone category. 

Just like most Rex Rhizome Begonias, most of them can be acclimatized and cultivated given their proper care and nurturing - however, it can be very challenging when lacking high humidity factor. 


I had mistaken thinking that this one was Begonia Marmaduke given the color texture, not many orange colored begonias that I have come across in the Plant Market this round, except for the common 3 colored toned Rex Begonias which often brought down from highland cultivation.

These have more like the 5 pointed star of the Black Begonia parentage, the burgundy colored back-leaf does give away some clues however not much information is available apart from the usual standard house plant care tips.

Few pointers - these are sensitive ones, similar like Tiger Kittens. 
Also some begonias are also identified with similar names with "Amber" of which they are totally from a different variety.

This particular one, Begonia 'Amber Love' doesn't morph into huge leaves sizes.
