Begonia (sect. Gobenia) Maldonado

This is probably the easiest Gobenia (also known as Goo-benias, for their tendency to melt…) to grow in the terrarium.  It also handles being moved better than most from this group.  Once established, it grows rather quickly.  The leaves on this species are between .5-1 inch wide and long, and the stems are a pretty light pink/red.  It will grow well over a well drained substrate, creating a dense mat, or it will grow up a vertical surface (usually stays under 16? if the surface is entirely vertical).
