I have been growing this beautiful Begonia as a house-plant-that-summers-outdoors for 2 years now. It does well on my north-facing windowsills and balcony. Likes high humidity and average watering. Too little humidity and water cause leaf crisping and drop. Does not like drafts or big temperature changes. I have successfully divided the plant several times.
