Begonia ‘Al Clark’

This hybrid is a cross between B. alice-clarkiae X B. imperialis var. brunnea.  It was created in 1975 by Rudy Ziesenhenne and named after a former member of the ABS Santa Barbara branch.  It has a reputation for being more challenging, but so long as its given high humidity it seems to be an easy keeper.  If given too much light it is prone to looking rather washed out.
