Plant care

Begonia luxurians needs to be placed in filtered light. It can only tolerate direct sunlight in summer. It can be kept outdoors, provided the temperature stays above 15⁰C. Generally speaking, normal room temperature is best but it must never exceed 30⁰C. Humidity of 50% is the minimum to stop the plant from drying out, but 65% is best. Place the pot in a dish containing lukewarm water to keep the growing medium moist. The top layer of the growing medium must be allowed to dry out before the plant is watered again. Use standard fertiliser once every two weeks. Begonia luxurians needs to be potted in a peat-based mixture. See “Plant accessories” for details. Begonia luxurians is likely to become quite large in due course, in which case it can be pruned.
