Begonia prismatocarpa

Begonia prismatocarpa

This little begonia has a somewhat unusual growth habit, creeping across the floor of the tank, or up the background, with a fine network of shallow roots. It takes a little while but it can actually eventually get out of control!  But you will love it once you get it established, the dainty leaves and the continous blooming of the plant makes it a centerpiece in the foreground of your terrarium.  

This plant is somewhat delicate until it becomes established in your tank.  The plant is extremely dependent on high humidity levels especially until it is established, so make sure you keep it moist during this stage.  However this rooted potted plant will be fairly robust and give you a good chance for success.  Despite the soft nature of the plant, be aware that it does like high light levels so make sure it doesn't get shaded as you are getting it established.  

Plant Shipping info! 

Many of our plants will be eligible for our FedEx 2nd Day Flat rate shipping.  We are delighted to be able to offer this service, as we feel it is a big improvement over Priority Mail, and only a couple of bucks more.  Note that you can change your shipping choice to another service option if you like, and in some cases this may be needed for safety.  Please keep in mind that depending on weather conditions you may need to have your plants held for pickup at a local FedEx location, or have your order shipped via overnight service.  We may contact you and suggest one of these options if we feel that your shipment is not able to be shipped safely with your selected form of shipping.  While the cart defaults to the flat rate shipping, you can change this in the check out process.  

Live arrival guarantee- Plants are guaranteed to arrive alive and in good condition if temps along shipping route and at your location are between 40 and 80 degrees.  If temps are going to be outside of these parameters, especially at your location on the day of delivery, we highly recommend having the package held for pickup at your local FedEx station.  Either input this address as the "ship to" address, or ask and we use your home address to find the nearest appropriate FedEx location.  

In the event of an issue please contact us as soon as possible.  Replacement is the sole remedy for live arrival issues, shipping for replacement order is the responsibility of the buyer.
