Begonia goegoensis

This rhizomatous Begonia hails from Sumatra and is easy to grow.  New leaves are red, and keep a subtle red edging when mature.  The leaves are very soft, and sort of shimmery.  The internodes are short, so it’s appearance remains compact.  I’ve been growing it in 100% clay but I think it would do well in many other substrates. suggests an addition of bone meal, with a light porous primary substrate.   It does well in temperatures in the 70’s and will sometimes lose leaves if kept too cold.
