About Begonia 'Gryphon'

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.
