Begonia sp ( Peacock begonia ) is an uncommon begonia which has shimmering green-blue leaves which evoke a peacock's feathers. Therefore, this begonia is also known as the 'peacock begonia'. the underside of the leaf is red. begonia sp can be kept as both in a terrarium or as a greenhouse plant.

When light hits the leaves from a certain angle, they light up with a shimmering metallic blue similar to a morpho butterfly.  the plant is found only in the cool, mountain forests of Malaysia. the iridescence of its leaves is a fascinating adaptation to low light levels of the forest floor. if you can provide the right conditions, it is easy to grow.

Best blue color seems to develop when the plants are grown very shady, humid, & somewhat cool. it seems able to grow in warmer temperature, but the leaf color is better when on the cool side. How Cool is too cool? I don't know but I can say that I grow this species as mature plant with 50-52F nights in the winter and it does just fine.
