Houseplant Care Guide: Begonia

Clare Haynes

 

One of our favourite species of plants, Begonias are often brightly coloured and available in a variety of different unique patterns textures! Some of our favourite Begonias are: Begonia Maculata, Begonia Indian Summer and Begonia Medora.

 

To keep your Begonia happy simply follow these easy tips!

 

Light: Begonia like bright indirect light. Unsure what that means? Bright indirect light means 4-6 hours of consistent light per day, often sat away from a window.

 

Water: Keep moist, however, take caution to not overwater or allow the soil to become soggy or waterlogged.

 

Nutrients: Feed regularly, following the instructions and dosage specified by the houseplant fertiliser. We recommend using Plant Runner plant food or We the Wild 'Grow' liquid plant food.

Other: Begonias may benefit from humidity and prefer warm weather. Ensure your Calathea is placed away from cold drafts.

 

Difficulty: Hard
