Begonias are robust plants; they come in many sizes, colours and leaf shapes, and bear flowers for many months.
These plants love partial shade outdoors or bright indirect light indoors
Allow it to mostly dry between waterings but not entirely
Give them well draining soil - adding about 20% to 30% perlite into your standard premium potting mix will do the trick.
|These guys are tropical/sub-tropical so prefer high humidity - dark brown, crisp looking marks on leaf edges are usually caused by low humidity.
|Begonias rarely need trimming except to remove injured branches and old flower clusters.
Toxic to pets!
|These plants are moderately frost tolerant but begonias are easily killed by hard freezes.
Please note that Begonias are notorious for not posting well, so keep in mind that you may receive a plant with floppy/brown edged leaves. They generally bounce back pretty quickly and will push out fresh leaves once potted up.
(You will receive a bare rooted plant similar to the one seen in the images.)
Each living plant is unique and may vary slightly in size, colour or shape.
