Comments: A good grower with very interesting foliage and nice flowering over an extended period. Bacterial leaf disease can be a problem. Do not over water begonias because of potential root rot problems. Plants bloom best if they receive morning sunlight and protection from the hot sunlight at high noon and early afternoon. Cuttings root quite easily in a sandy soil mix.
