Begonia - Voodoo Star

This is a tricky one.
I started loving this as its quite hard.
It appears to have a hard rhizome embedded on the medium and the foliage is much thicker compared to other Rex.

I'm pretty sure there are different types of these but as for now I will be content with this one.

I'm totally in love with this one.
The foliage is much thicker and firmer than most begonias - more like plastic hard.
And the surface is more like a palm lines on a hand, the veins are embedded inside from the leaf surface giving it a 3D features.

Another factor I had noticed is that there is a light pink sheen shades upon it.
I had noticed few variants of this kind and just can't take my eyes from it.

Will follow-up with the progress and update time to time.
