General Information and Care: Begonia minutifolia is a beautiful small growing species from the Crystal Mountains in Gabon. The leaves on this species do not exceed Â½â in length or width. Additionally, it grows fantastically in typical terrarium conditions, and even does well in slightly swampy conditions. The beautiful red stems hold deeply serrated bright green leaves. As it grows, it branches beautifully to form a small clump. Pruning of this species is rarely needed due to its growth habit! Definitely a must have species!
