Hi!
I was at my mom's house, and her angelwing/walkingstick begonia *which is the one that mine was cut from* has been growing these flowers that are a lil bit different from all the other ones that were growing earlier. They have another section behind the pettles that looks like another set of pettles, only they're pentagon shaped, and still pink.

My mom said that these were eatable, but she wasn't about to try them lol. Are they really eatable? I never thought begonia flowers would be.
