Nights and Red Satin

First night shift down, seven to go. Pictured is the Begonia Regal Minuet, a gift from Hil's friend.Im under strict instructions not to kill it in my flat! It has small pink flowers buds beneath, but the most beautiful thing is the foliage.
It is a shimmering red and black, like Satin, you can see how the flash has reflected off the leaves surface. Its sat by the Front room window with light, but not direct sunlight.I need to do more research about the plant when im not working.
I love the colours!

I like begonias, too. I've never seen one so red as the one you have. I can never get mine to bloom. :-(
Please share if you learn any tips. I need to do more research on begonias too.
