Begonia semperflorens-Hybrids, Wax Begonia
Annual, packs, pots, containers and landscape plantings
Sun - Shade
9" / 23 cm
1-2 seeds/pills per plug
Light is required for germination. 5-10 days at temperatures of 75-80 °F (24-26 °C), and relative humidity levels of 95% or higher. For pelleted seed, slightly higher temperatures and 100% relative humidity aid in uniformity of germination. pH levels of 5.5-6.5 are optimum.
Transplant plugs after 7-9 weeks and grow on at
62-68 °F (16-20 °C). Fertilize weekly with 150 ppm nitrogen watching to avoid excessive salt buildups.
Use a well-drained, growing substrate, pH:
Grow at 17-19 °C. For selling harden the plants at
7-10 °C and UV light.
Begonia semperflorens does not tolerate frost.
Moderate fertilization levels are required. Fertilize the crop weekly with
100-150 ppm nitrogen, using a complete balanced fertilizer. High ammonium and high nitrogen levels cause big foliage. Avoid pH above 6.5, as high pH causes iron deficiency. Apply Fe-chelate if chlorosis becomes a problem. Avoid high salt levels in substrate.
