Beautiful silvery-grey markings contrasted against green flushed purply/red foliage. Flowering a pale pink in Autumn. Makes for a striking begonia especially when allowed to grow big & it can grow quite big. Slide through the photos to see some of the variations.

When grown in shade - the tones appear diluted and spans out big whereas if it receives good strong indirect light - the olive green notes appears strong and the silver in the middle area appears more vibrant.

Plant Care:

Probably the quickest way to kill a begonia is too much water. Let them dry out slightly between waterings. If they are kept cool, you may notice they can tolerate a longer time without water. Give them a boost of humidity by setting the pots in a pebble tray (a low tray or saucer filled with pebbles and water, with the pot sitting on top of the pebbles and not directly in the water). 

East-, west-, or south-facing windows are best. If any burning occurs when grown in a south-facing window, move the plant farther from the window. As an alternative, they grow well under grow lights. Place where dry air from heater vents won’t blow directly on them.
