Begonias Indoors

• Both wax begonias and angel wing begonias are fibrous-rooted, which means they have a basic, familiar looking stringy root ball. These are the begonias commonly sold in hanging baskets and as bedding plants. Timing Is Important: Bring your begonias inside before the first frost, or they may be lost for good. Also, to reduce temperature and humidity shock, take advantage of that wonderful early fall season (when neither the heat nor air conditioning is running nonstop) to get your plants acclimated to the indoors.
• Leave in Pots: To save the work (and plant stress) of potting your bedding begonias, try nestling them in the ground in pots that are easy to lift out in the fall.
• Repot if Necessary: Spring is the traditional season for repotting begonias, but if yours are so rootbound that they’re struggling, go ahead and move them to a bigger pot before bringing them indoors for the winter.
• Trim Back: Lightly pinch or trim back leggy begonias to shape them up. If you’re digging up bedding plants or repotting a rootbound plant, cut back the tops to about the same size as the root ball.
• Inspect Carefully: Don’t bring pests or diseases indoors! Throw away any begonias that look diseased or infested, and treat minor problems before bringing them inside.
• Light: Bright filtered light is ideal, with perhaps some winter sun from an east-facing window. Blooming types of begonias like more sun than foliage types. Even though the light is dimmer indoors, be careful of too much sun exposure, especially if your begonias are used to growing in the shade.
• Water: Keep begonias evenly moist, neither soggy nor dried out. Begonias don’t like “wet feet,” so empty the drainage tray or decorative planter after watering, so that they don’t sit in a puddle.
• Fertilizer: Feed your begonias lightly throughout the winter. These types don’t go dormant, but they will slow down some over the winter. A good rule is to feed them more when they’re growing, and less when they slow down.
• Temperature: Keep your begonias between 65° to 73° F during the day, and no colder than 55° F at night. Be aware of drafts and freezing window glass that might damage foliage.
• Add Humidity: A pebble tray will help give your begonias extra humidity to cope with the change in environment. If you’re overwintering Rex begonias, they might need misting or a little help from a humidifier.
• Adjustment Period: Some begonias respond to the shock of moving indoors by dropping and regrowing some or all of their leaves. Don’t worry, just pinch back leggy stems and keep on taking care of your begonia until it grows new leaves.

Wax Begonias are fibrous rooted, mound forming, tender perennial plants
that are most often grown as annual bedding plants.
Dwarf varieties of Wax Begonia grow from 6″-8″ tall. Tall varieties grow from 10″-12″ tall.
They have succulent stems and waxy, deep green to dark mahogany colored foliage, and they produce loose clusters of single or double, white, pink or red flowers from May until October.
Wax Begonias can be grown in the garden, in planters, or as a house plant, if their cultural requirements are met. Wax Begonias are very easy to propagate with 3″-4″ tip cuttings taken from a mature plant and struck 2″ deep in rooting medium, after removing the lower leaves.
Place the cuttings where they will receive light sun or bright light and keep the rooting medium moist while the roots are developing.

How do I plant non stop Begonias in a window trough | Hayes Garden World

Views:2404|Rating:4.29|View Time:1:19Minutes|Likes:6|Dislikes:1
This video shows how easy it is to have a windowsill full of colour for very little money. We have just used a budget pack of the large flowered non-stop begonias and put them all in one window trough for maximum impact. The main thing to remember is not to let them get too wet before they have sprouted as the water can sit in the depression on the top of the corm. Once they have put on some growth they need quite a bit of food and water. One of the benefits of growing begonias is that they are fairly tolerant of a little bit of neglect so if you forget to water them one day they won’t curl up and die.
