Begonia rubida

Begonia rubida is another quite rare species of humid rainforests of Borneo.  It bears red-tinted heart shaped leaves on short upright shrubby canes.   

It does well as a not-too-wet terrarium specimen but needs good light to do well. As such, it also may be grown as a stunning accent in a warm humid greenhouse.    

Offered here as young plants in 2 1/2" pots.
