Question
My plant has a green leaf with grey specs. The edge and under the leaf is a maroon like color. The edges of the leaf is jaggered.

Answer
Rachel,

It sounds like a description of a begonia. There are many types. If you send me a picture of the plant I could more specifically identify it for you. You can e-mail the picture to this address. If you can't do that you can google begonia and then click on images and see if any of the pictures match your plant.If not e-mail me that picture. Good luck!
