Begonia coccinea




Begonia coccinea

$8.95  

This begonia has been circulated under this name for many years, although it doesn't really seem like a cane or match the original description, or accounts by the first growers.

Not always easy to grow but worth the effort. It does not seem to do well with cold or overwatering, so it is easier to keep if grown indoors, in a greenhouse, or given some protection from cold weather. Make sure to let it dry out before watering. Makes a nice hanging basket and is a novel species to collect. Please be advised that it is not like other canes, nor will it grow 5 to 10 feet tall like Begonia 'Pink coccinea'.

Also, use it in its own hanging basket. Indoors give it bright conditions and humidity and let the soil dry slightly between watering. It does not like waterlogged soil, so do not use too large a pot, smaller is better. Needs part to full shade outdoors in mild climates. Minimum temperature should be 50F, with the ideal range from 65F to 85F. Since cuttings root easily, it's a good idea to periodically replace old plants. Cold air, especially in winter, may cause some leaf drop. Do a bit of judicious pruning in spring to induce new growth. Native to South America. USDA zones 10 - 11. Urticaceae
