#2 attempt -What is this houseplant? ;-)

littledippy(4)December 12, 2011

Thanks 'tj' for the email about photobucket (which I already use) and how to post a photo here.

Also, found out that this forum doesn't work well, when using Firefox browser.

So, if anyone can identify this houseplant for me, I would so appreciate it.

Sorry, not working. But since I too use Photobucket, I'll try to explain.

Once you've loaded your pix onto Photob..., it will appear w/ lines of code under it. You need to cut & paste the THIRD LINE OF CODE into the body of a message here which you will have already started. It'll look like gibberish at first, but when you hit 'Preview' it should show your image. It can take a few tries to get it right.

I doubt that doing the same thing is going to get me a different outcome... but I will try it again! I copied the HTML code, and pasted into this message ... right here...

Check your settings to make sure you have the linking options available.

Little Dippy. Have you tried the Begonia Forum? One member there can ID 98-99% Begonia types.

Yours is a cane. Grows upright and anywhere between 1.5-4' tall. Think I have the same Begonia, but there's quite a few Begonias w/spots and similar leaf shapes and patterns. Toni

Thanks everyone for the help. I searched the photos and descriptions at begonias.org, and I believe I am the proud mother of a Lady Vanderwilt.

Wow! How pretty! I think the one I just bought for 25 cents is like yours. I didn't know there was begonia forum. See ya there!
