but it looks to me more like pellionia of some kind - very similar growth.
leaves are very fleshy and hairy with burgundy undersides.
it's trailing too.

you got it! thanks!
the leaves did look like mini-begonia leaves, but i've never seen this type before. like it a lot!
i see you have it too and it does good outdoors? i am thinking of putting it on the NE balcony once it warms up (we've had a very cold spring so far with exception of a few super hot days, totally crazy).
it'll be mostly in very bright shade with may be a few hours of very early sun? i need some trailers, besides ivy...but how does it do on hot days? like over 85F? probably not so good? i bring some plants back into a/c to keep them from declining. what do you say?

Happy to suggest. :+) That Begonia LOVED summer in south Alabama, way hotter than 85 every day, oppressively humid. It bloomed like crazy until frost came. The wheelbarrow it was in was on the west side of a tree, so the sun started hitting it in the late afternoon. Morning sun sounds good too.

This winter was so mild, the roots are still alive in the wheelbarrow! I noticed new growth about 6 weeks ago, when I went to put a couple snake plants in there. That's one tough plant!

I took this pic 4/15.
