General Begonia Info
Begonia is a massive genus of plants containing over 1800 species and many man-made cultivars/hybrids. Most Begonias are widely distributed throughout tropical & subtropical environments in Central America, South America, Africa, Asia, and the Pacific Islands. There is a tremendous degree of variation between species, and there's no easy way for us to summarize it all here while doing the complexity of the genre any justice. Check out Wikipedia's Begonia Pageext link for a good place to start, if you'd like to get into some of the details. There are a ton of beautiful Begonias available on the horticultural market, but the majority of those found in typical plant nurseries & garden centers are larger species which are best kept as ornamental houseplants. With that in mind, we always do our best to offer small & miniature species which are appropriate for terrariums.

Begonias At NEHERP
We work with a handful of smaller-growing rhizomatous, trailing, and rex Begonias which are appropriate for use within terrariums. We are actively looking for new terrarium appropriate species, so please let us know if you've got anything available which we don't yet work with! Our growing conditions & propagation methods vary depending on the specific species, so it's best to check out the description of each plant below for specific details.

Plant Size Info

Potted Plants:

Best Terrarium Plants For The Price Bare Rooted & Wrapped With ID
Plant nurseries roughly categorize their plants by pot size, and a plant is made available once it has mostly filled out it's container. Generally speaking, a 4in potted plant is roughly twice the size of a 3in pot, and a 3in potted plant is typically twice the size of a 2in pot. Needless to say, we do our best to offer big & healthy plants which were categorized honestly, and are representative of the photos we've got listed on the site. Every potted plant we sell is shipped bare root, and the root ball of the plant is carefully wrapped in paper towels before it's placed back into it's cleaned pot for shipping. From there, it's wrapped in clean brown packing paper and labeled with it's species before shipping.
 

Live Mats:

Healthy Background Plants For Terrariums How We Ship Live Mat Terrarium Plants
We're proud to offer a brand new way to order plants, and we're loving the results so far. Our Live Mats are grown with plenty of light & the ideal amount of moisture required to form a dense mat. Before shipping, each section is gently separated from it's sealed container, rinsed free of excess potting soil, and carefully placed in a partially inflated airtight bag. Depending on the specific plant, live mats can planted terrestrially or attached to a background to grow epiphytically. These are exceptionally dense portions of plants, so a little can go a long way!
 

Rooted Portions:

How We Ship Rooted Portions Of Terrarium Plants
Some plants we grow are offered in rooted portions, which are slightly smaller portions than would typically be included in a 3in pot. The length and overall portion size depends on the species being offered, but these do include a portion of the root system for easy planting & fast acclimation. When it comes time to ship, we'll carefully separate the portion from it's mother plant, rinse the roots free of potting soil, and carefully wrap the roots in a ball of moist paper towels. From there, the plant is wrapped in clean brown packing paper and labeled with it's species before shipping.
 

Clippings:

How We Ship Clippings For Terrarium Plants
Clippings are the smallest size portion of what we offer. Depending on the species, clippings may or may not include small attached roots. Plants we sell as clippings are typically epiphytic in nature, meaning they'll grow without soil on the surface of another plant (or wood decor, backgrounds, etc). The difficulty in planting clippings depends entirely on the species, so don't hesitate to ask before ordering if you are curious. When it comes time to ship, we carefully clean, wrap, and seal our clippings in partially filled bags to ensure the safest transit possible. Like everything else we sell, these are individually labeled with ID.

A hard to find rhizomatous Begonia that thrives in higher humidity. Bright red coloration and stiff (not sharp) haris run up the petioles of this plant, making it hard to miss. The leaves are green & dark green from above, with red & green coloration underneath. We consider this one a slow growing fairly small variety. The pictured plant is growing in a 4in pot.

Begonia rajah

Begonia rajah Begonia rajah
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
The pictures say it all. This is one of our favorite Begonias for terrariums, and it's slow growing & low-growing nature make it an awesome choice for a variety of enclosure styles. It's a rhizomatous species which rarely exceeds 6-7in in height. It's leaves can slowly grow to around 4in across, so be sure to allow it plenty of room to grow. The fragile leaves have a bumpy texture to them, and new growth is typically a brighter red color when grown in ideal conditions. This one requires especially quick draining soil, and shouldn't be allowed to stay wet for long. The flowers (fairly infrequent) are bright pink with a yellow center.

On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This great looking plant is actually a member of the Saxifraga family, despite it's common "Begonia" name.

If planted high in an enclosure, the plantlets will drape down towards the substrate for a great "overgrown" look. A very forgiving plant. The pictured plant is growing in a 4in pot.

Begonia bowerae

Eyelash Begonia

Begonia bowerae Eyelash Begonia

A hard to find rhizomatous Begonia that thrives in higher humidity. Bright red coloration and stiff (not sharp) haris run up the petioles of this plant, making it hard to miss. The leaves are green & dark green from above, with red & green coloration underneath. We consider this one a slow growing fairly small variety. The pictured plant is growing in a 4in pot.

Begonia foliosa tolerates a fair amount of light, with the brighter red coloration happening in brighter conditions. This plant can be mounted to trail downward, or will simply creep around & upward if grown in a vivarium's substrate. The pictured plant is growing in a 3in pot.

Begonia rajah

Begonia rajah Begonia rajah
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
The pictures say it all. This is one of our favorite Begonias for terrariums, and it's slow growing & low-growing nature make it an awesome choice for a variety of enclosure styles. It's a rhizomatous species which rarely exceeds 6-7in in height. It's leaves can slowly grow to around 4in across, so be sure to allow it plenty of room to grow. The fragile leaves have a bumpy texture to them, and new growth is typically a brighter red color when grown in ideal conditions. This one requires especially quick draining soil, and shouldn't be allowed to stay wet for long. The flowers (fairly infrequent) are bright pink with a yellow center.
