Lighting for your Begonia
A well lit, bright spot but avoiding direct sunlight is perfect for Beth. In the wild she normally lives under big tree's that provide her a little bit of cover from the sun.
Watering your Begonia
Moist but not soggy. We recommend letting Beth's soil dry out by the top 2-3cm before watering thoroughly.
Humidity for your Begonia
Beth does like a little bit of humidity. To increase humidity you can mist Beth every few days or group her together with other houseplants. Too much misting can cause sogginess.
Fertiliser for your Begonia
In the spring and summer fertilise every 2-3 weeks.
Repotting your Begonia
Beth has a pretty shallow root system. Her roots tend to grow outwards quicker than growing downwards. Consider repotting her into a wider shallower pot. Alternatively, you can fill the bottom of a deeper pot with gravel.
Begonia plant care Problems
Soggy soil for a prolonged time can cause root rot.
