The statement,above, that Begonia chlorosticta does not set seed/does not breed true, is not correct. Begonia chlorosticta is a species. It produces male and female flowers on the same plant. It is self-fertile, and of course reproduces also by cross pollination with other members of its species. Except in the tropics, this species must be grown in a larger terrarium, or humid greenhouse. It doesn't like its medium too wet. It doesn't like heat. it is beautiful. I will post a photo.
