If you are experiencing freezing temperatures, please let us know.
We can hold your order until it is a better time to ship.

We remove soil when we ship. Succulents are unlike other plants in that there are no issues
with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. Take them out of the box and put into
a pot with moist soil. As a general rule, plant in a pot twice as big as the root ball.

Regards watering: In winter, wait
a few days so the roots start reaching down for water.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

We take photos of our plants to show you what they look like. We are not selling the plant in the photo.
Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be
one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at different paces and different sizes
so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

Sale plants may require additional freight payment

Begonia dregei

 

Begonias occur in tropical and subtropical areas, with most species in America (2 genera and over 900 species). In southern Africa there is one genus (Begonia) with five species: Begonia dregei, B. homonyma, B. geranioides, B. sonderiana and B. sutherlandii subsp. sutherlandii. Begonia dregei is rare; it occurs in forests, on rocky, mossy cliffs and steep banks, from the coast to 1 219 m altitude inland, from East London to KwaZulu-Natal. Derivation of name and historical aspects: Begonia is named after Michael Begon, 1638–1710, a French governor of San Domingo and a patron of botany. The specific name commemorates J.F. Drège (1794–1881), a German horticulturist and plant collector in southern Africa. Ecology: Begonia dregei is quick-growing and does not like much water in winter as it occurs in a summer rainfall area. Top right beautiful caudex.
