Default Begonia?

Found this plant for cheap at a local store, it was unlabeled but I assume it's some type of begonia. Anybody have any ideas?

Yeah, that is a Rex begonia. Not really suitable for our vivariums (they need humidity and air circulation).

You have an east window?

What do you mean? Humidity and air circulation is what I have in my tank. Why are they not suitable for a dart frog tank? Am I doing anything wrong?

Thanks for the Id! But I'm also a little confused on the 'not suitable for our vivariums' part. I already have begonias (albiet different types than this one) thriving in my tanks. Are rexes especially fickle or am I missing something?

Put that one on a windowsill and get some species begonias for your viv. There are some pretty cool ones you can get online.

I've grown similar Rex begonia in some of my vivs, but they got rather large, and ended up shading a lot of the smaller foliage.
