Default Plant ID, Begonia?

I am looking for this plant but I don’t know the full name. You guys have more plant experience than me, please help a fellow frogger our 😄. I am new to plants, the reason why I would like to keep these with my dart frogs is that the vines give a shade hiding feeling and fills a lot of the air gaps halfway up the tank because they grow upwards as it spreads. Are there any other similar vine plants like this?

Not begonia. That looks like Pilea cadierei. Grows very tall very fast. Will spread out if you trim (in my experience). In my case was just when it began blocking other plants.

I just realized I had posted in the wrong section :/. The plant has redish stems and the outer leaf is dark green, shiny, and has sharp edges. When I had googled Pilea cadierei, it had leaves that has white patterns.

im talking about Pilea Cadierei aluminum specifically. The aluminum color sometimes isnt as pronounced in person as it is in pictures. Fits your description and looks just like the picture.

Begonia glabra, maybe?

The commonly available Pellionia grow like this, too, as does Ficus pumila. They all take up real estate (too) quickly, and become obnoxious over time (not necessarily a bad thing).

Yea after coming home and looking I don’t think I’m right lol BUT if you are looking for a plant like the one you’re describing it definitely will fill space quickly

Smile Re: Plant ID, Begonia?

Thank you very much. I love the fact that it grows like a weed and gives so much more hiding places for the frogs to feel secure.
