Begonias have a very special place in our hearts. Begonia amphioxus is native to Borneo, and will make for a great terrarium plant! One highly notable quality is that it has beautiful red spots vs. the other varieties that have white spots.
Begonias do not need any direct sun, though do need a bright filtered light to keep them happy. They also like to be watered when the 2-3 inches is dry which is roughly every 7-10 days. If they ever wilt, usually they will pop right back up within a few hours of watering! If ever repotted, they do best a HEAVY ratio of perlite to soil. Though we have found best results for growing begonias to be avoid repotting altogether.
