If you are looking for a Begonia species that has it all for terrarium culture, this is an excellent choice. It is a small growing, compact species that is easy to keep and propagate and has beautiful foliage (even the backsides of the leaves are something to marvel at). It is a Rhizomatous species native to Central China. “Leslie Woodriff called it the “Fairy Carpet” begonia because of the velvety appearance of its dark green leaves, frosted with silver and covered with thick red hairs, especially down the veins.” (from Begonias.org). Caution is advised during summer months, as this species does not like heat. The flowers range in color from whiteish-pink to more yellow like the ones below. Tepals are covered in pinkish-red hairs. You can view more detailed images of the flowers here.
