Begonia 'Jive'

Indeed it's a handsome begonia.
It has an elusive name, I have yet to find the true identity of this plant.
It can also be Begonia 'Baby Dress'

I often think the greener the begonia, the hardier it should be since it can photosynthesis easily compared the colored version where no green seemed to be visible.
But I was wrong. 
I had bought a pot and had separated to many clumps but only to find the plant so sensitive and mostly had died on me.

I had separated and propagated the foliage too but none showed any promises.
Most had rotten away.

It's a beauty to cultivate and get your hands on.
I have yet to discover her secrets and wonder what is yet to be revealed

Here is the link where I had put together a list of all the begonias that I had come across. A database of all the different types & their characteristics. Please click on the link on the title above for the post.
