I'll go ahead & bump this off the top.

I didn't get much of a response on other boards, either. Not very many nurseries seem to grow it, perhaps because of its rather insignificant, white bloom or maybe the reason could be that its not the easiest plant to grow... as some claim it doesn't do well in summer heat. I'm still intrigued by its unique foliage & may give it a try.

RE: Palm Leaf Begonia - 'Begonia Luxurians'

I need your help. I'm wondering why not my new Luxurans is growing. New buds have come but they become dry and dropped. There are two leaves only remain.
I love Luxurarians and bought two months ago that is one foot hight and I potted into a bigger pot, watering almost every other day.
My apartment is directed to east and geting morning sun trough shade filtered windowpane. I live in zone #10 San Diego.
I thought Luxurians is a parfect house plant for me.
I'm now trying to spray water several times a day and more new buds come but they never grow.
Please some advices. Thank you.
