Awesome! What species is it? It looks like some kind of parvi or brachy species in pic 3 and 4 (it is hard to tell from the photos)?

I also love that begonia species, awesome foliage (I also have a thing for Begonia's :))!

I would say that spot is 'very' well drained!

Great 'in-situ pics', thank you for sharing. It is always an honour to see these kind of pictures. Is there any kind of habitat description to go with these?
Altitude, orientation, temps etc?

Thanks for sharing. I guess that I'd ought to try growing begonias in my environment before getting one of those. Since both plants looks happy ..lol

Pretty much looks like the species grows directly on limestone and the roots are covered with a little moss and lichens.
Probably with the bulk of the roots in humus in the cracks where there is a little moisture retained or seepage. But interesting to see a few roots wandering over bare rock! These type of pics are very instructive.
I presume this is the dry season?

The photo was taken the week before I posted it. It is indeed the dry season.

A couple more:





I will try to get answers of all the inquiries.
