Begonia lichenora

Begonia lichenora is native to Sarawak and was only formally described in 2017. It is a true miniature, with leaves staying under 1?. It resembles another plant that is going around as sp. Sarawak, or ‘large lichenora’ but to my knowledge, the flowers of these two plants have never been compared to confirm that they are the same species. Lichenora shares some of the same iridescent qualities as sp. Sarawak, but tends more towards green.

It is a vigorous bloomer in the terrarium, producing lots of tiny white flowers with a subtle pink tint.
