Getting cold outside! 🥶 Cataloguing another houseplant that I’ve never added on GT. A friend in my garden club gave me two cuttings about two years ago of this plant, and all I knew about it was that it was a cane begonia. Done a bit more research recently and I think it might be a cultivar called 'Lucerna'. The dots are not as big as the polka dot begonia, and photos on the American Begonia Society webpage of Lucerna look very similar to mine. Hope it’s right.

It hasn’t flowered yet, but it does grow quickly! The underside of the leaves have red undertones to them too. #begonia #cane-begonia #canebegonia #begonialucerna #begoniacorallinadelucerna

Thanks Jason, think it has a mind of its own as the stems are just growing in all random directions! @hebelover
