Cane Begonia 'Albo-picta var rosea'

This particular cultivar is very similar to albo-picta but the leaf formation has more edgy formation at the top for this one. I have yet to see the blooms to determine whether if it is different or has the same pink color like albo-picta.

Some updates:
I found the features of the foliage seemed to be a bit rounder and the spotted specks are visible even on matured leaves. However I'm a bit concerned when I find this plant is growing tall but no new branches appearing which worries me as it may suddenly succumb to root rot and I may lose the plant.

I am thinking of trimming down the plant and propagating them into few plants of which I had done earlier and only one stem appeared to survive this ordeal - thus the only surviving piece currently available. Indeed it is a such a sensitive plant and I'm yet to find anyone who is having this specimen for me to truly identify it.
I got this one from a friend who had already moved to another country after she had finished her studies and I have no clue other than this one surviving in my garden.
Mostly like the mystery will reveal itself when this one have decided to flower - but as for now - this much of information I can muster.

Apart from this slight variation.
Other matters are very much similar with the general information about Cane Begonias.
