    Is it a begonia?

    MJ I’ve pert’near exhausted my collected knowledge of begonias with the above guess on the ID of your posted plant. Sorry.
    Hopefully Laura735, a most excellent plant ID expert who Walter should be paying the big bucks, will tune in with some ID and care information. I saw where she had recommended the American Begonia Society to another person regarding his post. I visited that site and found it helpful. If your plant is a begonia it may be a type of Rex begonia. Check it out: https://www.begonias.org/greenhouse/rex.htm

    Looks like one of the painted Rex begonia (Begonia rex-cultorum) to me too Bobby. With so many cultivars, I’m reluctant to ‘guess’ which one this is.
    For care information.


    And Bobby, your witty humor lol…

    I always thought that Walter paid you quite well and per plant identification, if not it is time to renegotiate your contract. I know a guy who knows a guy that used to be an agent.

    Bobby, anyone who uses pert’near in a sentence is pert’near the top in my list. Shuck’s darn.

    Thank you both for your help!
