Silvery green/purple plant with furry leaves?

Could anyone help with identifying this plant?  It has fairly large leaves with silver fur and light green leaves with purple red veins underneath.  I'm wondering what conditions would be best for it in terms of sunlight/water etc.

AllThings_Gardening writes: This looks like a Begonia! Many different type but the leaves sure resemble a Begonia. Looks very healthy but may be a little root bound from looks of pot. Most Begonias have red underneath leaves. They need very bright light-some sun if they are flowering. Posted: 7:09 pm on March 2nd
