Definitely not a Begonia. One of the Tradescantias. Look at sillamontana & cerinthoides species.

Possibly, a pic with a scale object could help.

You have this one in the wax begonia entry, which, as pointed out, is incorrect.

I'd say Tradescantia cerinthoides.

The text with the database image said you grew the plant from seed; the text on this thread said you received it as a cutting. Is it just that you uploaded the wrong image?

I would remove the image from the database but then this thread won't make sense so just waiting for Colleen to add the photo again to the first post.

It looks Tradescantia or Callisia related to me. Is it a duplicate of Agoo's photo at this entry?
