These fibrous Begonia boast stunning shiny, dark-bronze foliage and rich tropical-red flowers! This is one of the largest and best-growing plants of the fibrous begonias, and it has deservedly won awards. Blooms are prolific! Plants grow well in partial sun or shade. Seeds are pelleted, which is a special coating that makes them easier/larger for handing.
Height: 10-12" tall
Location: Part sun or shade
Note: These seeds and plants can be harmful if eaten. Ingestion can cause illness such as vomiting or diarrhea.
About pellets: Pelleting is a coating that is sometimes applied to small seeds, to help with handling and sowing. Once the seeds are sown and watered, the pelleting is designed to immediately disintegrate to release the seeds.
Seeds per pack: 10
Germination: Start these seeds early indoors. Place on the surface of a sterile seed mix (do not bury them), and keep moist and warm (75-80F) until germination. Do not let the soil dry out, or it can end the germination process. A soil-mix formulated for starting seeds is important for begonia.
