Commonly referred to as "Rex Begonia Vine," this is actually in the Vitaceae (grape) family. Native to Southeast Asia, it produces very begonia-esque leaves with shimmery silver, green and purple patterns. Mostly seen trailing in a hanging pot, it will also happily climb a trellis. While not necessarily a beginner plant, it will grow very well with experience.
Medium to bright indirect light. Less striking pattern could indicate lower than optimal light.
Water when almost dry in summer and allow to dry out in winter. Overwatering is easy, and they will drop leaves quickly if too wet.
Keep humidity and temperature high and warm. If your leaves are falling off, it might be too cold or dry.
Pro tip: A lot easier to grow in warmer months. Practise restraint with watering during winter.
