Begonias like bright indirect light but no direct sun. Sufficient light helps the leaves and flowers develop a more intense color. Insufficient light causes the plant to become leggy and prevents flowering. When light is too intense, the edges of the leaves of Begonia curl and turn brown. very swift death will happen to this plant if it sees temperatures below freezing!

Don’t overwater your begonias! Let the soil dry out almost completely between waterings. An underwatered begonia can be revived by a good drink but over watering can lead to more serious fungal issues or root rot. During winter, when the plant isn’t in an active growing phase you should reduce watering frequency even more.

As with all plants, drainage is essential. Ensure that whatever vessel your plant is in, there are sufficient holes in the bottom to allow excess water to freely drain from the pot and away from the plant’s roots.

Feed with liquid fertiliser fortnightly over the warm, growing period and not at all over the cooler winter months.

It’s completely normal for older leaves, lower down on the stem of the plant, to fade in colour and brown off as they age. Prune off any damaged or dying leaves using a sharp pair of scissors or secateurs so that the plant can put more energy into the newer, healthier growth.
