Begonia plants are among the loveliest flowering plants grown in houses and in gardens. They are available in a variety of sizes and fascinating colors.

Flowers vary according to height, color, habitat, and sizes and shape of the leaves. It is one of the largest flowering genera. The leaves of the plant are asymmetrical and the flowers are unisexual. These plants need soil that is rich in nutrients. Acidic soil with lower pH levels is ideal. A mixture of heavy soil, peat moss, manure, can also be an option. Some people prefer adding light medium of soil such as sand to their potted mixture. One thing that should be kept in mind is while choosing the type of soil it is important to take into consideration the surrounding environmental conditions. Gardeners need to keep their begonias free of frost; on cold nights, the plants can be moved indoors.
These flowers are a great choice to embellish a yard, as they can tolerate full sun or shade. Begonias grow well in potting soil, as opposed to planting mix, as potting soil provides adequate drainage. Soil with a low pH is also essential. Though begonia plants need to be watered when the soil they are planted in grows dry, gardeners should take care to make sure that their begonias are not allowed to sit in moisture, as the plants will rot. A good rule of thumb is to water them between once a week and every two weeks.
