The habitat of Begonia baik is destroyed by bulldozer.

Rescue operation to save & propagate the remaining Begonia baik as the one & only habitat (that I known so far) has been destroyed by the bulldozer for clearing the bushes as vegetation is overgrown & too near to the road.

This Begonia baik will die if i didn't see it and replanting it back to the slope.

A leaf found on the destroyed site

Only a few are survived....

After 2 weeks of in situ propagation of Begonia baik in new location....the plants are doing well.
