Begonia vankerckhovenii

Begonia vankerckhovenii is a charming micro-miniature African species that has been in cultivation previously as "Begonia scutifolia (little form)".   This liliputian is even smaller than B. prismatocarpa.  Is similarly free flowering with attractive buttercup-yellow flowers with reddish veining.  It's a lover of humidity and thus it will perform best as a terrarium subject. Its so small that it will even perform beautifully within a "berry-bowl" type of setting (closed small glass container) and make an admirable coffee table accent.

These are nice Blooming size plants currently in 2" pots.   Reasonably easy.
