information: Rieger Begonias are sometimes
called Winter Flowering Begonia". This doesn't mean
that you can only get them during the winter, they are available
year round at your local Floral Shop or Garden Center.
Rieger Begonias are easy to grow and can be
re-flowered after the initial flowers decline. They plant will
thrive in bright indirect light. Full hot sun will burn the
leaves. Water your plant when the soil has dried down about
1/2" from the surface. Do not allow your Reiger Begoni" to sit in a saucer of water... this is sure to cause
root rot. Avoid splashing water on the foliage to help prevent the
occurrence of powdery mildew. Feed monthly with a balanced liquid
fertilizer. Remove spent flowers as they appear. When your plant
stops flowering... just be patient and it will become a beautiful
flowering house plant again
providing it receives enough light.
