New to begonia Rex (just received three for Valentine's)
Hi! I usually post on the CA gardening forum but I think this might be a better place for my question. I absolutely love begonias but have only grown Sempervirens. I kept Sempervirens on my front porch for several years and they grew quite well but weren't too exciting.
Can I do the same with my new Rex begonias? I've read that they like high humidity so I was going to plant the three RB's into a shallow clay pot and set the pot over a dish of pebbles w/water.
I want to know if the RB's can sit on the porch year-round. I have a Schefflera arboricola growing on the porch and it handles the climate quite well, I never protect it or bring it in.
