Begonia burkillii, a native of India, is a captivating species that can be found thriving along steep cliff faces in dense jungle, or overhanging streams and rivers. Its natural habitat provides significant clues to its preferred growing conditions, making it an ideal choice for humid terrariums.

One of the key requirements for Begonia burkillii is high humidity. Its lush foliage and uniquely patterned elliptic-shaped leaves are coloured with chocolate brown blotches against light green. Each leaf is distinct, with varying sizes and shapes of blotches, adding to its charm. The growth habit of this rhizomatous begonia is compact and mounding, making it a great choice for creating a lush and dense terrariumscape.

To provide the best care for Begonia burkillii, replicating its native humid environment is essential. Placing it in a terrarium with high humidity levels can help recreate its natural habitat. Using well-draining soil and maintaining consistent moisture levels, without letting the soil dry out completely, can promote healthy growth.

We only ship plants on Mondays. Please order before 2pm on Sunday to ensure your plant will be sent the following Monday. Orders placed after this time MIGHT not be shipped untill the following week.

We only ship plants to non-quarantine states (sorry sorry WA, TAS and NT residents). Shipping of plants is capped at $18.00 per order. This includes the packing materials and labour times. We use recycled packing where possible to reduce our waste and keep cost down, but we ensure that all packing material is sturdy enough to resist damage during transit.

If no one is home to receive your order, the parcel will be left in a safe place. We will not request signature on delivery, as parcels sent back to the post office may not get picked up for days, therefore increasing the amount of stress placed on the plant(s) inside.

This plant can also be picked up from the Northern Wellbeing Centre; 113C miller st, Epping VIC. If you select this option at check-out, we will email you to organise a pick-up time.
