    I've never grown one of those, but the foliage looks really neat. Looks like they need to be kept kinda cool, temp wise? Or is it just shade that they need?

    That's SOME Begonia!! I think you should register that baby - especially if that bloom is fragrant!!! of course I wouldn't mention the "grafting" aspect of it.....

    Gin, you rock. That's hilarious.

    I've got a very similar Begonia rex. It bloomed last year, and was very disappointing. Doesn't matter though, the leaves are so nice.
