Can Anyone Identify This (Cane) Begonia?

Hi, everyone! I have purchased this begonia about a week ago, and I have no idea what kind it is. All I know is its some kind of cane begonia. I've read that a while back, begonias were a huge fad to house plant enthusiests, so I figured someone here might know what I've got. Also, I've read a lot of contradicting information on how to properly care for cane begonias. If anyone has any info on there cultural needs, I'm open to that.

And, just to add an observation, the leafs only develope the white dots on them with age.

Maybe folks are busy with work/harvest/processing food?

I used to have some begonias beneath my roses at my previous house, but they were in the ground and, to me, nothing special. Just begonias from the nursery...

I've now posted a similar thread in container gardening.

It looks like a type of angel wing begonia. Don't we have a houseplant section around here? (Asks a member of several years who still doesn't know their way around...) :oops: Maybe try general gardening?
Happy Gardening,
