Begonia tripartida is a species of flowering plant in the slate family (Begoniaceae). It is also known as "three-part begonia" or "three-lobed begonia" and originates from the tropical rainforests of South America, including Brazil, Ecuador and Peru.

Begonia tripartida is a perennial rhizome plant that normally reaches a height of about 30-60 cm and extends to a width of about 30-45 cm. It has fleshy stems and leaves that are usually in alternate arrangement. The leaves are deeply lobed and have three distinct lobes, which gives the plant its German name "Dreiteilige Begonie". The leaf lobes are often asymmetrical and have serrated edges. The leaf size can vary depending on environmental conditions and ranges from small to large.

The flowers of Begonia tripartida are usually on long, slender stems that rise above the foliage. The flowers are usually small, often less than 2 cm in diameter, and can come in different colours such as pink, red, orange, yellow or white. The flowers are unisexual, with male and female flowers usually occurring on separate plants. The male flowers have numerous stamens, while the female flowers have a swollen ovary at their base.

Begonia tripartida prefers shady locations and humus-rich, well-drained soil. It is often grown as an ornamental plant in gardens, hanging baskets or as an indoor plant. It is known for its attractive foliage and delicate flowers and is often used in shady areas to add a splash of colour. Its compact size and easy care also make it a popular choice for terrariums or indoor gardens.

Overall, Begonia tripartida is a visually appealing plant with its characteristically lobed leaves and delicate flowers, making it popular with gardeners and plant lovers alike.
