need help to ID plants... newbie to begonias

hi from the philippines!
i chanced upon this collection of begonias at a nursery last weekend and got a few begonias. i only have one other begonia at home but not of of them have names. unfortunately, the nurseries here aren't really diligent with naming what they sell. but i really want to know their names and hopefully that will also help with my research on how to properly care for and propagate them.
will post the specimens i bought in a bit.
it's a little bit challenging to get proper potting medium for them here since we don't have a very good garden center but our weather and humidity here seems to be a good fit for begonias.
thanks!!!

Plant #1
- with white flowers
- the biggest leaf is more like a dark pink and at certain angles, the surface seems iridescent.

This was my first begonia. it's growing back from overwatering. I'm guessing this is a cane variety? one of the stems with 1 leaf fell behind the old pot and grew on the ground. I'm planning to repot this one in a more shallow or smaller pot with better potting medium. This is just garden soil and it seems too heavy and slow draining.
This had coral-colored flowers. I hope I'm able to revive this.
