GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Begonia is a genus of perennial flowering plants in the family Begoniaceae.
  • The genus contains more than 1,800 different plant species.
  • The Begonias are native to moist subtropical and tropical climates.
  • Some species are commonly grown indoors as ornamental houseplants in cooler climates.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • All begonias prefer well-drained soil rich in compost or organic matter and some like some degree of shade.
  • Semperflorens and tree begonias however tolerate more light than the others.
  • In cooler climates, too much shade can reduce flowering, while in hot areas, too much sun will burn the foliage.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Apply 10-10-10 liquid fertilizer diluted at a ratio of three parts water to one part fertilizer when you first plant (or transplant) your begonias and approximately every three weeks thereafter.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Most begonias grow best in part shade (4 to 6 hours of direct morning sun a day), or filtered sun (as through trees).
  • Most will tolerate full shade (no direct or filtered sun), but won't be as dense and usually have fewer flowers.

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.
