Beautiful Plants / Flowers
Kris (rookie plant starter) from OH wrote on January 07, 2019

In the past I grew Bosa Nova begonia plants purchased from a garden center. I absolutely loved them. Santa Cruz appeared similar so I decided to try growing them from seed. The seeds germinated in about 1 month. At first the seedlings were so tiny I needed a magnifying glass to see them. The first true leaves grew rounded, making me wonder if I received the wrong seeds. But each new set of leaves grew more into the 'angel wing' shape of the Santa Cruz. Only six of the ten seedlings survived, but that was all I needed. I was blessed with beautiful plants and flowers from late May through October.

The germination rate is not good - about 30% when done exactly as should be - but the plants you get are spectacular! Gerrmination - 3 stars, Plants - 5 stars

Fun plant to grow
olddog67 from ID wrote on December 21, 2014

Fun plant to grow if you have the patience and you are willing to fallow strict instructions. I have been growing them successfully well for the past three years. You must maintain the proper temperature, humidity (moisture) and light requirement. I am storing second year tubers that are over six inches in width. It is hard to imagine how a seed so small can produce a tuber so large in two years. My best luck has come from planting the seed in December or January when it is easy to keep the planting medium temperature from getting to warm. It is a proficient producer of flowers from as soon as it is six inches tall until the frost puts it down. Very easy to grow after it attains three inches of height. It will easily grow to a foot high and 16 inches wide the first year. The second year it will be 1 1/2 foot high and two feet wide. Fun plant to grow.
