Begonia chlorosticta is a truly stunning Orchid companion plant and is one that does exceedingly well in greeenhouses or in medium to larger sized terrariums.
The foliage on the "red" form is, like its green counterpart, boldly and attractively polka-dotted. However, this form's leaf bears a base color of reddish-brown across the darker emerald green base color. It is simply an amazing pattern.
They are compact growers and definitely have preference for humidity making them terrific terrarium plants and also good humid greenhouse orchid companions! These are young but strong, cutting-grown plants, currently in 2" pots. Easy but demands high humidity.
