Dear all, Years ago I owned a house plant whose leaves appeared to be truly asymmetric. They looked more like some types of brown algae than like any other leaf I've ever seen. The closest I came to finding something with my plant's leaf shape was in photos I came across for Begonia spp. (bipinnatifida, serratipetala, or partita) But it isn't a Begonia. Begonia leaves are too symmetrical and the tapering too uniform. The leaves on my plant were glabrous with red and green variegation, and the leaf tips were rather wildly lobed and asymmetric. The "deepness" of the lobes indenture, and the number of growing "nodes" within the leaf lobes (not sure if this is correct terminology), was actually asymmetric -- not just alternating or oblique. It was as if the growing pattern were not obeying the laws for fractal geometry that seem to govern every other plant I've seen. We had it when we were in California, although I doubt it was a native, and it grew to be about two feet tall (with mature looking leaf sizes ranging from about 2-4" in length) and was susceptible to white fly (we struggled with that for a long time but finally got rid of it) but I suppose that doesn't tell you much. The plant was lost in a move, so I don't know how long they live, but it was a fantastically charismatic house plant. If anyone can direct me to other possibilities aside from those Begonias, I'd much appreciate any ideas for this continuing search. If I do identify the plant, I'll be sure to post here again. Thank you!
