Begonia oxyanthera is a nice miniature species Begonia that I picked up this year at Fairchild's spring plant sale. I'm growing it in Sphagnum moss, indoors on my western windowsill. I water it regularly. As a bonus the small flowers are fragrant.

Unfortunately, during the research for this post I discovered that this plant is on the IUCN Red List. There really isn't much info out there on this species.
