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

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.

RE: #3 attempt -What is this houseplant? ;-)

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...

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, 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!
