    I grew this rex begonia from a leaf that was given to me. I had tried to find an established plant but was told they were unfashionable at the time and so the growers were not developing them. It took a year to root in water, I do not not know why it took that long as I have grown them from slip/leaf cutting before and to my recollection they never took that long to take root. It is now an established plant. Although it does give a small insignificant bract of flowers, it is known here as a foliage plant.
