Begonia corallina

Begonia corallina I like the article

Light Begonia corallinaPosizione mezza ombra
Let's avoid exposing apartment plants to direct sunlight, which could damage the leaves, especially during the hottest months of the year. We should prefer a bright position, but with filtered light. The Begonia corallina is a pretty delicate plant, which fears minimum temperatures below 15įC; during late spring it can be cultivated outdoors.It prefers partially shady locations, where it can be reached by the solar rays only during the coolest hours of the day.

Water Begonia corallinaTenere Umido
To avoid that a scarce drainage could favour the development of fungal diseases, let's remember to avoid leaving water in the saucer. The Begonia corallina Needs regular watering, but we suggest letting the soil dry between one watering and the other; let's take action every 1-2 weeks , remembering to water the substratum well with 2-3 glasses of water .

Fertilize Begonia corallina
In the spring letís use a fertilizer every 15-20 days, melting it in the water which we use to irrigate; we can choose a fertilizer for flowering plants or green plants, rich with nitrogen and potassium to favour a balanced development of the new vegetation. Otherwise we can, if we want to, use a slow release fertilizer, to add to the soil, every 3-4 months.

Pests Begonia corallina
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Mold Begonia corallina
These plants need to be grown in a soil which isnít too drained. Every 2-3 years we should change the soil and place the plant in a larger container.
