Watering Your Begonias

Begonias dislike soggy soil. Overwatering is a common mistake; it's crucial to let the top few inches of soil dry out before rewatering. They prefer their environment on the drier side, so wait until the soil is nearly dry before giving them a thorough watering.

Light Requirements

Begonias need bright, natural light but not direct sunlight, which can burn their leaves. They thrive in bright indirect or medium light. Position them in a spot that receives plenty of natural light without the harshness of direct sun.

The Ideal Soil

Mix 1 part perlite with 4 parts potting mix for the best soil composition. This mix ensures good aeration and moisture retention, allowing water to release slowly, creating an ideal environment for your Begonias.

Safety Note

Begonias are toxic to cats and dogs. Keep them out of reach of your furry friends to avoid any accidental ingestion.

Caring for Begonias is about balance—managing light, water, and soil conditions to mimic their natural habitat. With these tips, your Begonias will not only survive but thrive, adding beauty and color to your home.
