Begonia Cachuma

Begonia Cachuma

This begonia is a rhizomatous begonia. It has large star shaped leaves with lots of red hairs on the leaves and stems. It is a very large grower and needs lots of space. I grow this one in the greenhouse. Make sure you let the soil¬† almost dry out before you water it again. In the summer time you have to make sure you don’t over water your rhizomatous begonias, because it is so easy to over water them. They have rhizomes that grow on the surface of the soil; some rhizomes grow erect. The rhizomes hold water in them just like a succulent that is why it is so easy to over water them. Remember all begonias like cool temperatures. In the spring and fall they are easy to take care of them. But in the summer it is to hot and humid and no matter how hard you try not to over water them; the heat and to much humidity will kill them!
