Begonia montis-elephantis

Begonia montis-elephantis is an attractive medium-small growing species from Mont des Elephants (Elephant Mountain), Cameroon, Africa. Its growth habit is semi-trailing to slightly mounding and it bears attractive yellow flowers.  It's a lover of humidity and thus it will perform best as a terrarium subject.  

These are nice Blooming size plants currently in 2" pots.   Seems reasonably easy.  Neutral to acidic medium that never fully dries out is preferred.
