Rieger Begonia

Begonia

Temperature: Average warmth.

Light: A bright spot away from direct sunlight.  A few hours of winter sun are beneficial.

Water: Water freely when plant is in flower, but do not keep compost constantly soggy.

Air Humidity: Moist air is needed – surround pots with damp peat and mist air around plant.

Care after flowering: Tuberous begonias- at end of flowering season withhold water, cut off shoots, lift tubers and store in peat.  Other types are usually discarded – otherwise cut back and keep cool with little water.  Increase water in spring.
