How to grow Begonias

Begonias make excellent foliage house plants. Begonia Rex do not tolerate direct sun and should be given light shade to prevent leaf scorch. Keep at a minimum of 16C.

To obtain the best foliage colour, red leaf varieties should be grown in bright light whilst a lower light intensity will often enhance the colour in silver leaf types.

Whilst the plants are actively growing, the compost should be kept moist and as the roots start to appear in the pot's drainage holes, 6-8 weeks after potting, start to feed with a balanced house plant fertiliser.

Take care to avoid over-watering as wet compost can lead to rotting. A minimum temperature of 12C (55F) is required and given these conditions the plants will provide a colourful display for many years. Keep on the dry side during winter.
