Water Begonia tuberhybridaTenere asciutto
Let's water abundantly, moistening the soil deeply with 2-3 glasses of water , but let's act only when the substratum is dry, leaving it dry even for 1-2 weeks before watering it. It is advisable to water the plants avoiding to leave water in the saucer, because stagnant water often develops fungal diseases.

Light Begonia tuberhybridaSole pieno
The Begonia tuberhybrida should be preferably located in a place where it can have at least a few hours a day of direct solar light. The Begonia tuberhybrida can't stand cold weather, therefore in general it should be grown in a sheltered place; during the Spring months, when the minimum temperatures are above zero, it can be moved outside.We suggest locating the vases in a pretty bright place, although avoiding direct sunlight, which could damage the foliage.

Cultivation 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.

Pests 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.

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