Begonia ferox: the fierce Begonia. Hailing from the limestone regions of China, this begonia features ferociously bullated leaves that belong in every begonia fanatic's collection. At maturity this plant closely resembles B. melanobullata, but is distinguished by the sharply accuminated apex of the leaves (i.e. the leaves come to a more dramatic point). It is also a bit slower to develop it's iconic bullae. This begonia will thrive in the high humidity of an enclosed terrarium, but be sure it also has some air-flow.

- Bright, indirect light

- Humidity 60% or more
- Grow in a terrarium or greenhouse
