|Habitat and Ecology:||
Common, often in damp, shady places in the mist-affected areas of the island; frequently in disturbed places near habitation; also found in the refugium of relatively mesic conditions on the north-facing limestone cliffs on Samha (cf Begonia samhaensis).
Balfour (Bayley Balfour 1888) recognized var. hirsuta, based on a single specimen, with densely hirsute indumentum and strongly dissected, dentate-serrate leaves. This probably represents an extreme form of this variable species and has not been formerly recognised here.
