Early last summer I bought a Begonia 'Sparks Will Fly' with lovely 
tangerine flowers on somewhat arching stems, bronze leaves with lighter 
veining. It clearly wanted to stop growing later this fall, even though 
transitioned into my greenhouse. In fact, it fell apart, dropped all the 
stems. And - surprise! - there's a nice plump smooth brown tuber sitting 
somewhat above the soil.

It is a seed raised Burpee offering, /Begonia boliviensis/ ‘Brothglow’

What can you tell me about /B. boliviensis/? Anyone else have 'Sparks 
Will Fly'? Do I just shove it under a bench and neglect watering until 
early spring?
