What a colour Michelle! As much as I love tuborous begonia, I don't know if it'll survive my Mumbai weather! @Pushkraj

Good morning @drumadixit - i think it'll survive in Mumbai. It does in Pune (which is relatively temperate) but try growing a begonia in semi-shade?

@Pushkraj, do you know where I can get the tubers? When is the planting season? I suppose Pune is a good place for many plants due to its temperate weather.

@drumadixit @Pushkraj mine is a house plant won't survive Indiana USA winters. I'm not sure what to do with it over winter. But as long as it's still blooming I am not changing what I'm doing.🤗

@drumadixit you can't buy tuberous begonias in our part of India but I know for a fact that they're found in the north east like in Himachal and Assam. Please visit flowersofindia.net to find the largest Indian database of plants and trees spotted in India. http://www.flowersofindia.net/risearch/search-m.php?query=Begonia&stpos=0&stype=AND

I must add that I don't have them myself. I wish I did though. I don't think they'd survive in Mumbai. @drumadixit

Thank you Michelle. They have all kinds of horse breeds, really large thick bodied drafts to the super tiny minis. All can be ridden or driven/pull carts. I bet there is one that could fit your needs. Plus, mine are like giant dogs. Lol

@SikoMa well I am morbidly obese and disabled and would feel sorry for any horse I got on. I haven't ridden in many years and then only state park horses.

Michelle, where there is a will there is a way. Plus, you don't have to ride them to enjoy them. They provide a lot of therapy for me, just talking to them and grooming them, and just being around them.
