Rieger Begonia
Rieger Begonia Plant Care Information

Rieger begonias are availiable in bloom all year round.

As a houseplant, they prefer bright areas, which is necessary for continued flowering. Keep them near a sunny window, but avoid direct sunlight. Soil should be kept moderately moist. Water thoroughly when soil surface is dry to the touch, but be sure not to let the plant stand in water.

Rieger begonias prefer moderate temperatures, 65-70F (18-21C)during the daytime, and 60-65F (15-18C) at night. Avoid excessively hot or cold locations.

Occasional misting of the foliage is okay, but do not mist late in the day.

Many people find reiger begonias difficult to propagate (but not impossible), and so most begonias are usually discarded after flowering. They can be restarted by cutting them back to within 3 inches of the crown, reducing water and keeping them in a cool location. Increase water in spring. New shoots may be used as cuttings.

If you need more information about begonias, be sure to check out the links on this page.
