About Begonia 'Gryphon'
There are over 2,000 species of Begonia, and horticulturalists have created even more varities by cultivating all sorts of shapes and colors! They're native to tropical regions around the world, but are now found in homes in cold climates as well. Their taxonomy is far more complex than other plants, with species belonging to different cultivar groups. They contain oxalic acid, so be sure to keep them out of reach in homes with pets or children! ⚠️

What other plant parents say
I absolutely LOVE my gryphon begonia. I got a single leaf propagation from a friend and within a few months (in lots of sunlight) I had a 2ft tall gorgeous plant. She’s still growing strong even after I accidentally broke a large-ish branch off (which I’m propagating very successfully!) a few weeks ago. This plant is definitely a top five favorite of mine.
