Red Wax Begonia Seeds, (Begonia Semperflorens Red), fyi - super tiny seeds!

Open Pollinated, Non-GMO, Annual, Succulent

Minimum 30 seeds per package

Start Begonia seeds early to have flowers that bloom all summer! In tropical or subtropical climates, the wax Begonia is a perennial plant that can grow to the size of a small shrub. In cooler climates, it is grown as an annual. Wax Begonias are wonderful bedding plants and they establish nicely from flower seeds! The uniformity of their size and shape makes them perfect for mass plantings. They are especially good in shady areas where few other plants will bloom.

Start the flower seed indoors, in bright light but not full sun, 10 - 12 weeks before last frost. Press Begonia seeds onto the sterile moist potting mixture, but do not cover the seeds. Water from underneath to avoid fungus, and cover the flower seed tray with plastic wrap to help maintain continuous moisture.

For optimum growth, maintain at 66 - 77F, with moderate humidity. Most survive short periods at or below 50F, especially in dry compost, but all growth will cease and many will shed their leaves. Succulent begonias need very well-drained soil, higher light levels, and drier conditions. Outdoors, grown begonias in fertile, well-drained, humus-rich, neutral to slightly acid soil in partial shade or good light, but out of direct sunlight.

They make very nice house plants.
