Once you find the ideal spot for begonias, they really are easy.  Filtered light is best.  Some require a bit more, some less.

I love this begonia, with its big star like leaves. The leaves on my old plant of this has huge leaves at least 20 across.  

Sometimes I admire the two-toned, green effect that the leaves have, other times the leaves appear pearly and glisten in the light.

This is one of the easier begonias to grow.  Give it a go and it will reward you immensely.  Tidy upright growth just needs a lot of space for those long stalks and big leaves.
