Begonia metachroa - Shop MiniWaters.FISH - Online Aquarium & Vivarium Boutique
Begonia metachroa is like the forgotten cousin of the Peacock Begonia that everyone lusts over (B. pavonina). Seems vigorous in vivarium care, and is highly iridescent, shimmering depending on the angle of the light hitting them. This species has also stayed a manageable size in my care. Finding information on this species is very difficult; it's suggested to be a native of Brazil. Sold in a 2" cup, minimum 4-6 leaves. As with all plants, the smallest one shown in the photos is our target minimum...yours may be larger. XLG also shown. Learn more below...
