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.
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.
