Plant care

Begonia fuchsioides doesn't require much attention. Provide a bright place, but avoid direct sunlight. A day temperature of 20⁰C and a night temperature of 15⁰C is sufficient. You can also grow the plant outside as long as the temperature stays above 15⁰C. Watch out for rain in that case. In the living room keep the soil moist by means of a saucer with lukewarm water under the pot, excess water must be able to drain well. The humidity should be around 70% during the day and 90% at night. Fertilize the Begonia fuchsioides 'Red' twice a month. A mix of peat and perlite makes a good soil. You can find these and other growing supplies under the 'plant accessories' section. Pruning is no problem.
