These plants can be put outdoors only if any danger of freezings has gone by. We suggest locating the vases in a pretty bright place, although avoiding direct sunlight, which could damage the foliage.These plants don't agree with direct solar rays, which could ruin their foliage; we therefore suggest to locate them in a partially shaded place.

Care Begonia discolor
These plants are perennial herbs. Begonia discolor Is an evergreen; during spring iIt assumes a pink colouring; the adult specimens are medium in size and reach 50 cm high. The Begonia discolor has a panel-like development, therefore it tends to widen very much.

Feed Begonia discolor
During the spring letís regularly use a fertilizer rich with nitrogen and potassium to favour the development of the new vegetation; fertilization is done by adding fertilizer to the irrigating water, every 15-20 days.

Irrigation Begonia discolorTenere Umido
Water when the ground is dry; in case of prolonged droughts water very often, otherwise every 1-2 weeks can be enough using 2-3 glasses of water ; avoid water stagnations and excessive watering. It is advisable to water the plants avoiding to leave water in the saucer, because stagnant water often develops fungal diseases.

Adversity Begonia discolor
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.

Substrate Begonia discolor
Cultivate in a good soil of an average mix, which slightly withholds humidity.
