Begonia rajah

This popular Begonia hails from Malaysia and is one of the easier species to grow.  It’s brightly colored foliage and small growth make it ideal for terrariums.  It does not seem to be one prone to melting and the leaves feel very sturdy, and make a nice perch for frogs and geckos.


And the flower,
