With the surrounding plants pulled away to sweep and clean, it’s time to take a picture. Yes, the Hawaiian begonia really is that big. The leaf showing fully to the camera is 17″ long. The stem it is on is 23″ long. The largest leaf is over 18″ long. It is immense. Click the picture for more detail.
Everything is filling in nicely. I’ll use this time to put one more plant in the wall and clean up dead foliage.
When the new house is up (years in the future) I’ll have a plant wall whose system spans two rooms. I’ll put the aquarium in the tv room where it can shine. The plant wall will be on the other side of the wall in the living room where it can get lots of natural light and act as an art piece on the wall.
