Care instructions

Put in a little and get back a lot!

Light
Begonia Elatior hybrids do best in medium light, well-ventilated rooms.

Watering 
Watering correctly is important in the care of begonias. Soil should remain moist, but not too wet. Water Begonia’s at the base of the plant, to avoid leaf spot and the possibility of fungal diseases on flowers. Allow the top 20cm or so of soil to dry out before watering again. Protect from powdery mildew by supplying adequate ventilation.

Height
20 cm

Availability 
All year round. Best treated as an annual and discarded when flowering has finished.
