Plant genus: Begonia 


Plant family: Begoniaceae 


Native plant: Sabah, Borneo. 


Soil drainage: with high water retention, we recommend a substrate mix composed of organic substrate, perlite, vermiculite, sphagnum moss. 


!Attention: It is recommended that the substrate be consistently moist but not excessively so, to avoid root necrosis. 


Soil pH: acidic 


Fertilizers: Begonias generally do not require constant fertilization since the substrate contains organic matter. It is necessary for the fertilizer to be diluted to avoid root burn. 


Air humidity: For the correct development of the plant, a high level of air humidity is necessary, ranging between 80% and 100%. 

Green Mirrors recommends keeping the plant in optimal conditions to prevent leaf melting. It can be placed in a terrarium, in a display case, or under a glass dome to avoid temperature and humidity fluctuations.

Begonia nothobaramensis translates literally to Begonia falsebaramensis because "notho" means "false" and baramensis refers to Begonia baramensis, which is also a begonia with white leaf margins from a similar geographic area. 

Begonia nothobaramensis is a species from Sabah, Borneo, known for its leaves that resemble long angel wings with bright white margins. Begonia nothobaramensis produces small, white flowers and can grow to about a meter tall. Although it grows at ground level, it likes to climb trees and rocks, so sometimes a support is necessary.
