Begonia soli-mutata

Has anyone had a lot of success with this one? I have it in a greenhouse and it always looks so bedragled. Edges of leaves brown and not very robust. I have a feeling I need to re-pot it in a better quality potting soil to provide more nutrients.

Any suggestions from any of you out there with your successes with this one?

Humidity is very key for this species. I put a cover over mine and it has responded in a very favorable manner.

I completely agree with Butch. Mine struggles in the winter and goes to town in the summer. When I put a cover over it it does much better, until I forget to water it (too many plants, not enough time!) It's beautiful in the summer tho' with all our humidity.
