Begonia rhombicarpa

This Philippines endemic is widely found in many rocky outcrops and shady ravines. In cultivation, this creeper cannot be contained inside a pot and will roam all over the rocks if it is allowed to. The flowers have 4 tepals and may be white or pink.

oh that is good, roaming space can be created easily by dumping a layer of sphagnum moss and then tossing this begonia on top! LOL
