    I will guess your plant is a begonia species.

    I agree with ianedwards that it's Iresine herbstii.

    It grows easily outside here in Sydney. If you live near the coast in Albania it would be worth trying outside. It grows easily from a cutting, so you could easily make a second plant to try outside.
