Metallic Begonia - Appx 20 - 30cm.


One of the tips for growing begonia as houseplants is to place them somewhere where they will get bright, indirect light and will get plenty of humidity. If the air in your house is dry, especially in the winter, it is a good idea to set your begonia houseplants on a shallow tray filled with pebbles and water.


Water begonias carefully.

  1. Let the potting soil dry out slightly between watering during lower light and cooler temperatures of late fall and winter.
  2. If possible, use room temperature water that has been distilled.
  3. Mist the foliage of Rex (foliage) type begonias twice a week or provide high humidity to avoid leaf drop.

Some are grown for just their colorful leaves, but most come in a range of flower colors. Most begonias grow best in part shade (4 to 6 hours of direct morning sun a day), or filtered sun (as through trees). Most will tolerate full shade (no direct or filtered sun), but won't be as dense and usually have fewer flowers.
