ok so i tried my luck by propagating begonia semperflorens by seed.I read from various internet sources that they are somewhat difficult to germinate,so i bought a pack of seeds with low hopes of accomplishing anything.Boy was i wrong!I had almost 100% germination in about a week and now im stuck with a bunch of seedlings without knowing how to care for them!(never had a begonia mind you!)So whats the next step in their care oh,begonia gurus? :-D

RE: whats next?

Don't let them dry out completely and don't keep them soaking wet either. Give them good light and a warm spot and they should be good to go outdoors when danger of frost is over. Fertilize with a weak water soluble fertilizer and/or slow release fertilizer. Pot up as needed.
