Rhizomatous Begonias

There are a few plants that I love unequivocally and among those plants there are a few that do not return the sentiment, among those are the majority the Rhizomatous Begonia family.
I buy them, nurture them, and in return they die. There are a few that
have been good to me, and rewarded my care with luscious leaves. However,
the majority of them just keel over. I don't quite get it, I treat them all with
the same love and adoration. 'Palmar Prince' died within a few months, as
did his lovely siblings, but the few that I have mostly NOIDs preform beautifully.
I can't stay resist though, begonias beware.
