I love plants, flowers, nature and all its beauty. They remind me how how vast this universe is, and we are nothing but a small little speck in it.10b

Help me identify this plant. Could it be #begoniarex. I got this plant for free with the weekly food donations they sometimes bring plants or flowers. I just watered and it came back to life.

It's an escargot begonia. I have one as well. Yours looks great!

@Shasha200521 they arent the same plant but they look similar! The coleus have a much more symmetrical leaf while the begonia tends to have one half that is larger than the other half of the leaf. The escargot begonia's asymmetrical leaf is even more exaggerated because it can whirl (reminiscent of a snail shell whirl).
