Cultivation Advice Begonia Tuberous Illumination Golden Picotee F1

  • Approx. 20-22 weeks from sowing to flowering from seed.
  • Sow thinly Dec – March. Seeds are light sensitive and need 12 hours of light per day. Therefore early sowing will require artificial light.
  • Surface sow the seeds and gently press into fine grade seed compost. Do not cover as seed requires light to germinate.
  • Place tray / pot in clear plastic bag or cover with a sheet of glass to maintain humidity. Water from beneath by soaking tray.
  • Seeds require a temperature of at least 25C to germinate which will require a heated mat or propagator.
  • Germination takes 14-60 days and depends on temperature you provide.
  • Transplant when large enough to handle into individual pots and grow on under cooler conditions. Plant to container / beds 9-12 Inches apart after all danger of frost has passed.
