How to plant Rhizome Begonias

















This is my style of planting begonias
If you find that another style works for you better - go ahead,
I'm not contesting it.
Regardless - after years of planting begonias
 - I find that this works best for me.

Medium:

Small pebbles or stones
Use these as a top medium and place the rhizome at the top of the pebbles.
You can push the rhizome in between the pebbles but don't totally bury it into the stones.
Just placing it on top of the stones.
Please refer the notes.

Light
They need indirect light
A short morning or evening light is ok - as long as its not burning direct sun.
These begonias do well for those gardens which are shaded, lacking bright direct sunlight

Watering
They love moisture but not soaking mud aquatic kind of wet.
It should be a clean wet - washed from the top of the pebbles
The excess water should drain out fast after watering.
As long as there are no stagnant water - its ok.

Consider this begonias like drainside plants.
They receive moisture / water but not too much wet.
Hope this helps.
