Why is my begonia droopy?
Begonias need continuously moist soil that’s well-draining. If the soil feels wet, or if you can squeeze some in your hand and it runs instead of holding it’s shape, the begonias likely have too much water. Adding peat moss to the soil can help improve drainage, or you can skip an extra day between waterings.
How do I bring my begonias back to life?
Take the following steps to save your potted tuberous begonia tubers: Remove plant from pot before hard frosts occur. Cut back most of the top of the plant, leaving the ball of roots and soil intact. Place in a dry, cool storage area (a basement or garage) and allow the tubers to cure for several weeks.
Are begonias supposed to droop?
If you are unsure if you should water, it is best to err on the side of caution and wait until the leaves begin to droop slightly, indicating that the plant is drying out. Water the soil directly, keeping the leaves dry. Begonias also require high humidity to thrive, a challenge when growing them indoors.
