Availability: In Stock
Family: Begoniaceae
Cultural Code: HP CGH what's this?

A well known hybrid by Ken Frieling at the Glasshouse Works. "Celery Stalk" thick blanched erect petioles flare into double Ionic helixes of wide deep olive leaves nearly entirely netted deep chocolate-sienna; very congested habit typical of many recent 'Hocking Hybrid' series. Although most popular as a basic addition to any terrarium design, 'Ken's Kandy' tolerates less than ideal humidity levels, thus it has remained a very popular windowsill subject. Looks terribly complicated and potentially difficult, but this vigorous tuffett is of easy culture.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
