    Maintenance Notes: 

    Overwintering Begonias, some basics. When bringing plants indoors from an outdoor garden area there are some basic do's and don'ts to consider. The first priority is to make sure your plants are free of insects or disease before bringing them in for the winter. Indoor conditions are very stressful to most plants and when plants are stressed they are more susceptible to insects and diseases. So before you bring plants in for the winter you may want to give them a good looking over, it will save you problems later in the winter when you may not want to use chemicals indoors. Indoor conditions are generally lower light than outdoors, so plant will have to adjust to lower light levels, sometimes they can do this easily and sometimes they must drop their outdoor leaves and grow new leaves that are better adapted to interior conditions. Plan for some leaf drop until plants become established again. All Begonias need bright filtered light when brought indoors and can sometimes be grown in full sun but be careful not to burn plants by exposing them to bright sun if they were grown in the shade previously. T he inside of your house is also very dry due to your heating system which removes water from the air as it heats the air in your house. You can make life a lot easier for your plants if you provide a source of humidity for your plants. Many people mist their indoor plants and while this helps it only lasts for a short period. A better long term solution is the use of a pebble tray under your plants where water can be added as it evaporates to keep the humidity higher around your indoor flowers. A pebble tray is simply a container that holds water filled with pebbles so that your plants sit on the pebbles and not in the water itself, water evaporates around the plant a creates a small "greenhouse" effect. Cane type & bedding begonias
    These two groups look very different but are both easy to keep over the winter. The Cane types include Angel Wing Begonias and also the Dragon wing types. These need very bright light to look their best, but not scorching sun. Keep lightly moist and lightly fertilized through the winter months. They never no go dormant, so do not allow to become very dry.

    My favorite plant of all is your Dragon Wing Begonia. I usually plant the red, but this year I planted both the red and the pink. The plants bloom continuously until the cold weather comes. I put them in two large brick and concrete planters that go all around our deck. People always comment on them, and several friends have now started using them. Looking at them never fails to cheer my day.

    • Low maintenance, but so exotic looking. My first time to plant on my North facing porch, but will plant them again next year due to ease of care and performance.

    • The flower color deepens with some sun. It prefers some shade too.
