Begonia cathayana ("b02") (white flowers)

This Chinese species will likely prove to be a form of Begonia cathayana - Its blooms are white but I have yet to have it formally identited.  It is another of the many rather stunning newcomers to the horticultural scene.  This one bears foliage of a deep purple-green with a lighter central band/ring of silver-green.  The leaf base color can vary a bit with temp/light/fertilization - but at its best, young fresh leaves have a distinctly jewel-like appearance - almost crystalline!   

I'm not fully sure yet (untested), but this one may not require a terrarium.  It does, however, seem to do best with good humidity so it may prove to do best when grown under-glass (terrarium) - time will tell. 

Offered here as husky young plants in 2-3" pots.
