    The most beautiful begonia ever is pavonina. It has leaves that change color from iridescent blue to bright green at different light angles You have to look for that one. It is endemic to the Cameron Highlands of northern Malaysia.

    the one Zainal shows on his pictures is B. sinuata. B. sinuata is a wide spread species, almost always found on vertical boulders in rivers.
