A rhizomatous Begonia from Southern China. Appreciates cooler weather, can collapse in heatwaves. Green leaves with dark brown bullae ("cones"). These bullae adds to their surface and aids them in collecting light [since they're from lower light forest floors]. No, the bullaes are not sharp and can break if you handle them too hard. Fuzzy stems, light pink flowers. Clump-growing
