|I just got a great deal on begonia roots/bulbs at Costco. |
The package says it's Begonia odorata, but it doesn't look like the sweet begonia pics on line. It looks more like what the UK sites call Begonia odorata.
Here is the picture on the package:
What is the common US name for this plant? And how should I start growing it indoors?

|Thank you, Sue! I think they were imported from the UK, thus the UK name. |
I am soooo excited to grow them, but from what I've read, I don't think they're going to handle our intense heat and humidity all that well.
