Begonia Rieger Assorted Colors 10" Basket

$29.99

Assorted Colors

 

Known as Rieger begonias, these beautiful flowering winter plants have creamy, beautiful blooms in bright yellows, reds, pinks, and even white. They are typically bred to bloom during the winter season and sold as disposable plants—the idea is to enjoy the bloom and throw them out after the season is over. But you needn't follow this rule: you can grow Rieger begonias year-round and enjoy their blooms next fall.


Growing Conditions

  • Light: Bright, indirect light year-round. They are photoperiod bloomers, meaning the bloom is stimulated when the number of hours of light they receive drops.
  • Water: Let the top 1/2" dry between waterings. After blooming, let the plant almost dry out and cut back all the foliage.
  • Temperature: Average to warm (and humid). They can go as low as 60 F at night in the fall to help stimulate a bloom.
  • Soil: Airy, light, fast-draining soil.
  • Fertilizer: Use liquid fertilizer weekly at quarter strength or biweekly at half strength. In the fall, switch to a high-phosphorous fertilizer to encourage bigger blooms.
