Enjoy DOOA ‘A rocky dance hall where Begonias from tropical Asia dance’

I imagined the way Begonia naturally grow on rocks and damp slopes and created a slope with Sansui Stones to connect it to the wall. To express plants that flourish powerfully in the rainy season, I placed Entodon sp. and Bartramia pomiformis on the slope and made them grow sufficiently. Begonia have a few growth patterns such as rhizomatous, cane-like and crawling, and different Begonia can be used depending on the situations. I incorporated 8 types of unique Begonia in this layout. I planted Begonia lichenora for the wall to slope, and cane-like Begonia amphioxus for the space on the left. Besides those places, I also planted them in the gaps between stones and driftwood pieces, near the wall and in the substrate. And it has become a delightful layout which you can enjoy distinctive looks of each Begonia.

Male flowers are blooming – Begonia phoeniogramma Ⅲ
Not only are its leaves beautiful with a tiny polka dot pattern but its flowers are also beautiful because the top and bottom petals and left and right petals have different colors and shapes. 2 flower buds at the bottom are female flowers.
Rhizomatous – Begonia sp. Sumatra
Six weeks after the production, its buds started developing. It is interesting that only rhizomatous Begonia develop at a different timing from other plants.
Rooting on Sansui Stones and driftwood
The Begonia planted next to each other were placed in a way that the patterns and colors do not overlap so that each individuality can be cherished.
