Begonia scapigera

This is a great species for the terrarium due to its small size and sturdy leaves.  It is native to the Guinean Mountains in Cameroon, and has a somewhat unusual appearance, with dramatic red-edged leaves.  The stems are also bright red.  It only grows to about 8″, oftentimes not even growing that large.  Flowers are yellow, and occur in abundance, creating a wonderfully decorated plant.


The backsides are just as pretty.
