秋海棠 Begonia sp. (White & Pink)
Begonias have long been popular greenhouse plants in temperate countries and are also used in some gardens, especially those with slightly cooler temperatures.
Given some humidity and filtered light Begonia masoniana is not difficult grow. it is best watered below the foliage to prevent spotting and mildew and can be fertilised with a diluted liquid fertiliser every 4 weeks while in active growth. watering needs to carried out once the top part of the soil begins to dry a little. the temperature should not fall below 13C (50F) or the plant will suffer.
