Begonia strigillosa

Begonia strigillosa is a beautiful Central American rhizomatous species that makes for a nice 8-12” mound of highly patterned foliage.   This one  seems easy but some growers report that it requires high humidity. If that’s the case, it would make this another one that's a good for terrariums.  Mine’s been growing as a greenhouse subject and in that sense it has been doing just fine - so its not a plant requiring a closed super-humid type environment. 

These are strong, cutting-grown plants, currently in 2 1/2" pots. Fairly easy but is probably prefers reasonably high humidity.
