Double Begonias are wonderful annuals blooming almost continuously with full double (rosebud-type) blooms. For landscapes or containers these should be among the easiest to grow especially outdoors in a shade/partial shade area. We also offer Double Begonias in URC (unrooted cuttings).
Plant 1 plug per 4in pot and pinch within 2 weeks. Grow at 55-60 degree night temperature. Use low feed in well-drained soil. May need occasional pinching if grown for an extended time. 10in baskets need 4 plugs per pot and 1 pinch at 2-3 weeks. For a larger basket pinch twice and grow for 10 weeks.
Cuttings vary in size between different plant families. These rooted starter plants will arrive ready to be transplanted in to your final container. If they are to be used in a landscape application, you will need to establish them in a 4 inch pot or an 1801 before planting outside.
