Begonia sp. (Gobenia section) "Crispate"

This (Gobenia section) Begonia is an Ecuador native.  It was received as Begonia dodsonii - but i'm not sure that it fits that species.  It is similar to some of the other Gobenia section species, but has a curly-wavy-notched leaf margin that adds to its attraction.  It's also very nice in that it seems to be much less "vining" than some - even though it still does have a similar habit (just shorter of a runner).

Like the others in this section, it prefers humid, terrarium-like conditions. I provide it a lightly damp (not wet) growing medium and ALMOST allow it to dry between waterings.  

Offered here as established clumps in 3" pots.
