Terrarium Add-on Plants

Terrarium Plant: Begonia dregei “Tweedle Dee”


  • Details
    This plant is an excellent choice for both terrariums and as a houseplant. When kept in a terrarium with good light it is a fast grower with beautiful bright lime green foliage. The leaves are serrated much like a Maple leaf, and it has white polkadots and red accents at the edges. It is also grown by man as a bonsai and will eventually grow a thick trunk-like center stem. Responds very well to pruning. It’s not overly fussy about humidity but needs to be adjusted slowly to any extremes, especially low humidity. Prefers consistently moist peat-based soil. Note that the soil should not be sopping wet, but like a damp dish sponge. In my experience it it doesn’t like the soil to become bone dry though it may tolerate it for a day or two. Propagated easily from cuttings. Flowers are white with yellow centers and is free flowering year round.
    Mature height: approx 8-16” (possibly more)

    You will receive a healthy rooted plant.

    How are terrariums packaged and shipped?

    Terrariums are packaged with great care. Packing material is used both inside and outside the jar so that the contents are not jumbled around during shipping. Any terrarium containing live plants should be unpacked immediately after arrival. Plants cannot survive long periods of time inside the box or with packing material covering them. If you need to keep the terrarium in the box then place it in the refrigerator until needed. This will keep the plant fresh (simulating winter conditions) and green. Remember to remove the packing material prior to storage.
