I recently purchased a small begonia Amphioxus and put it in a small plastic put into a small jar like container with stones at the bottom. It seems to be doing well, with new root growth visible. However, I tried to remove the plant since realising the jar was too small and placed it into a much larger container to create a humid environment. Anyways, by doing so two of the leafs split, with ease I might add. Are the leaves usually this brittle / delicate? And what's the best way to care for them and provide sufficient humidity?

Moving it to a much larger container is more likely to lead to root suffocation than to increased humidity that it doesn't really need anyway.

Please post a photo of the plant and its pot.
