Default Manini at almost 3 months.

Here's a pic of my Manini at almost 3 months. It was planted on June 23. I haven't done anything special as far as fertilize etc is concerned. i lost all but two varities last winter and will finish the season with thirteen. This year has been fun. Thanks all for your support.

Stunning plant, Al. Congratulations.
I also like the decorative pot and the flower arrangements around it (hard to identify, but ice begonias? ).
Very pretty.

No clue on variety of Begoinas. I put them in most beds along with Angel wing begoinas.

Love it! How big is that pot? Also does having "ground cover" in the pot hinder pup development?

Pot is 20X20 at the top, aboug 16x16 at bottom, 18" high.

Flowers don't take up enough nutrients/water to make any difference. They actually help shade the roots. It is planted in a COARSE paver sand around the roots and about top 4/5" deep, all below that level is potting MIX. It has been a dandy. Any other questions call me.
