    A really interesting looking plant and easy to grow. I still love this plant so much after a few months, it’s so unique and fuzzy

    Ok, this has to be one of the coolest and one of my favorite begonias. Even bought a second. So unusual with the growths on the face of the leaves, but the fact that every part of them are fuzzy as all get out makes it even cooler. I have them under 6500k led lights and every bit of the hair on the leaves sparkle. Adorable!
