Begonia goegoensis

Begonia goegoensis

Begonia goegoensis likes bright light and high humidity. I purchased this begonia along with paulensis at the South West Texas Begonia Get Together. This is another begonia I thought would not survive for me this summer. But surprise surprise it did! This begonia is mostly grown in a terrarium. I don’t like growing plants in terrariums; I want them to grow as large as they can grow, so I keep away from those types of plants. But when you see such unusual begonias like goegoensis you have to try. Well I got so busy this summer that I just set it aside for a while till I could get to it; well I never got to it; I just watered it like the rest of my rhizomatous begonias in the greenhouse and it grew! So I just let it grow. The leaves are a dark brown bubbly bronze color with light green veins; the leaves have a quilt like texture. I love the way it looks. There are a few other begonias that look like it at least to me they do and they are Rajah and George Fewkes at least I think thats how you spell the last one!? Some one out there let me know if this is correct. All I can say is try to grow begonias the best you can; you will be surprised what begonias can tolerate! Please please leave me a comment are ask any questions or leave any suggestions. We can all learn a thing or two from more begonia collectors out there.
