 Begonia bipinnatifida
Family: Begoniaceae
Fern Leaf Begonia
Origin: New Guinea
Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterPink flowersOrnamental foliage

Begonia bipinnatifida offers a very unique finely textured foliage that is dark green with a deep red to almost maroon coloration on the stems and underside of the leaves. Each division of the pinnate leaf is also pinnate: this gives the leaves a fern-like appearance. This plant prefers a warm, humid environment and occasionally produces bright pink flowers.

It does not appreciate cold water, nor does it like water to be constantly on its leaves. Begonia bipinnatifida plants are recommended to be grown in contained atmosphere (terrarium) under horticultural fluorescent lights. They require particularly bright light, therefore they need to be closed to the centre of the light where light levels are most intense.

Alternatively, plants grown under natural sunlight on a windowsill will often perform best when provided with a south facing position in winter and est-facing one in summer.
