Begonia tuberhybrida Billie Langdon

Begonia tuberhybrida I like the article

Irrigation Begonia tuberhybridaTenere asciutto
We suggest watering the the Begonia tuberhybrida every 1-2 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water. It is advisable to water the plants avoiding to leave water in the saucer, because stagnant water often develops fungal diseases.

Temperatures Begonia tuberhybridaSole pieno
Let's grow the the Begonia tuberhybrida in a luminous place, with direct sunlight. 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.

Care Begonia tuberhybrida
These plants are perennial herbs. The Begonia tuberhybrida has a panel-like development, therefore it tends to widen very much. This plant in the winter assumes a white colouring; it is small in size and can reach 30 cm high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter.

Adversity Begonia tuberhybrida
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 tuberhybrida
These plants favour soft and very well drained soils. We suggest, every 2-3 years to repot the plants, changing the soil.
