Cane Begonia Collection: July - Sept 2021 Updates (Part 3)


These are what I had recently lost by making a grave mistake - repotting them into a bigger pot.

I also noticed that Cane Begonias loves to be pot bound and prefer not replanted in a bigger pot - I had a horrible lesson learned when I had almost lost a whole collection when I repotted them to a bigger pot. The whole root-ball in all of them started to rot from the bottom. The Cane Begonias doesn't look healthy - slowly the started to shed one leaf after another and the Cane started browning and drying up at the mid-section of the Cane.

By the time, I tried to attend to rectify it - it was too late, I managed to safe few cuttings and the rest never recovered. This is one of the most challenging moments when it comes to Cane Begonias - hence it is very important to always have spares or friend/few friends who cultivate and keep the begonias for you in case yours gone into the state of emergency or kaput.

Growing these Cane Begonias in Tight spaces without over-potting them. These Begonias seemed to love this type of conditions as I often noticed that bigger pots tend to hold to much water in the medium causing root rot. Smaller and tight pots seemed to work best for them.
