Default Any idea what this little plant is?

Any help with the name of this lovely little plant would be much appreciated!

Small, green leaves with white spots and red veins / stem. Bulbous 'root'.

Looks like a Begonia, but I couldn't tell you which one. They don't like eternally wet feet. Use a well drained soil. I melted my early Begonias with too much moisture. I started having success with them when I began planting them in small mounds, on high spots of your substrate, or under a branch, ledge, or other somewhat dryer spots in the viv.

Will I have any success growing it epiphytically on this cork branch?
I mean, I guess there's only one way to find out

Possibly a young variety of B. rex? It should do fine mounted for at least a little bit (especially if there are frogs in the tank), but may need more nutrients from the ground in the long run.
