Terrarium life — This little heart shaped Anthurium andraeanum is a miniature variety/mutation that keeps it this tiny forever. It’s a great addition to any terrarium, not only for its convenient size but it actually blooms tiny weenie red inflorescences which makes it even more interesting. This little guy is growing as an epiphyte, attached to a cork tree branch and it couldn’t look more happier. Have a nice weekend! 🌿

Baby B. ‘Pollux’ — yes, as the closest giant star to the sun. Introduced in 1994, this Japanese hybrid made by Hideki Yamaguchi, is a cross of the Chinese B. circumlobata (with palmate leaves) crossed with a Rex cultorum hybrid ‘The Chief’ which was then crossed with the Chinese B. hemsleyana which is from Yunnan and has palmate leaves with small silver spots. 4 different plants, carefully selected that resulted in the beauty that B. ‘Pollux’ is.

a very rare Moment sp. 🤪 #boyswithplants

a very rare Moment sp. 🤪  #boyswithplants

I must confess, I’m a little obsessed with my Alocasia cuprea. The purple/pink/marrom hues are driving me crazy with joy! 🤩  What’s really frustrating is that you can’t see it properly here, because I’m not driving my time and patience towards photography right know ... Lots of work and stress, you probably know what I’m talking about. 😰 anyway, have a nice day! 🌿🌿🌿 _______________________________________________________________

This Anthurium magnificum leaf is so big it can’t just fit properly on this image. 😂 anyway, I guess I’m slowly getting into the anthurium world... like I hadn’t enough already. Oh well, I just can’t help my self. 😅

Philodendron verrucosum is such an amazing plant. I can totally remember the first time I saw one here, I was completely obsessed with every characteristic of it. Sometimes it is hard to believe that this beauty exists in my life. I’m sure you have somehow experienced this feeling with plants, right?

B. ‘Dark Mambo’ for foliage Friday! This black foliage begonia is a hybrid made by the amazing Dutch Antoon Hoefnagels. There’s a lot of begonia hybrids in the European market made by himself. Have you ever spotted one?

Philodendron gloriosum, looking glossy after a SmC bath. This guy came to me as a really tiny stem cutting, that got lost in transit for 2 weeks and arrived in perfect conditions, which proved how he wanted to live and prosper. Each new leaf is bigger than the previous ones, so I just can’t wait to see him grow seriously huuuuuge leaves.

B. ‘Arabian Sunset’ is definitely one of my favorite cane mallet hybrids. The color, the shades and hues are really really amazing. It’s a cross between B. ‘Shalimar’ and B. U062 made by the famous begonia hybridizer Brad Thompson.

Cute new leaf of one of my B. ‘Cleopatra’. You can spot a few other Cleopatra’s neighbors, like B. ‘Boomer’ and B. variegata, ‘cause they are living in the same propagation Begonia box for quite some time. I need to show you all my propagation bins, all made with recycled materials. Reuse! Use your imagination guys. ♻️ _______________________________________________________________

B. aconitifolia ‘Hildegard Schneider’. There’s little information about this beautiful begonia, which makes me wonder if it is a hybrid or a variant of the aconitifolia species. I’ve discussed this with some begonia experts and we believe that this is the metallic variant of the B. aconitifolia, sometimes written as B. aconitifolia metallica. What do you think? Do you have any info about this gem? 🙈
