GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Begonia masoniana, the iron cross begonia, is a species of plant in the family Begoniaceae, native to southern China and northern Vietnam.
  • It was originally described from cultivated plants of unknown origin and was only much later rediscovered in the wild.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Use light potting soil with extra perlite to promote proper drainage.
  • In the garden, grow begonias in sandy loam soil.
  • If you have heavy clay soil, grow begonias in raised beds filled with compost and topsoil.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Begonias thrive on fertilizers that deliver consistent and balanced amounts of nutrients.
  • Fertilizers such as 10-10-10 fertilizer contain 10 percent of each of the macronutrients: nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • The morning sun and a little afternoon shade are perfect.
  • Bright, indirect light.
  • It also thrives under fluorescent lights.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • The main rule of thumb for watering begonias is to not let the soil dry out completely.
  • Stick your finger into the soil, and if it dry to your first knuckle, it's time to water.
  • Avoid overwatering, which will cause the foliage to turn yellow and eventually drop.
