You could be one of a rare breed that brings waxes inside. What kind of waxes do you have? Are they hard to come by?

RE: does any one else love wax begonias

no they are not hard to come by they are just so pretty i only have 1 but i love it (my neighbors threw it away and it was a twig with like 2 leaves now its this) how do i pollinate it and grow the seeds? Does it look healthy i cant let it die it is my all time favorite plant! (the pictures in the link)

RE: does any one else love wax begonias

It depends on how much of a hybrid you have. It may be sterile. If it is fertile you should have two types of flowers - male (pollen bearing) and female (has a sticky pistil and ovary). Transfer the pollen from the male flower to the female either by removing the male and touching the pollen to the female or using a brush or a finger or a Q-tip or anything that can transfer pollen from the male to the female. In cases like this it is much easier to start new plants with stem cuttings. Cut below a node while keeping a couple of nodes above and push the stem into some moist potting mix enough to embed one node.

I bring them inside too. They're welcome in here anytime.
