The Basics

Tuberous Begonias are best suited to climates that are cool at night. 
They require cool nights to grow properly.

Whitehouse Nursery Tuberous BegoniasThey will grow in South Australia, Victoria, NSW and parts of Queensland.
Anywhere there are cool nights. They won’t grow in the tropics.

When purchasing a Tuberous Begonia from us, they will be available for mail-order from June until October. Until they start to grow.

They can be grown in both pots, hanging baskets and the garden, although it's easier to manage them in pots and hanging baskets.

Care Instructions for Your Tuberous Begonia

Caring for your Tuberous Begonia is easier than you think. Your Tuberous Begonia only needs to be kept moist and for you to remove the dead flowers. The flowers will fall off naturally but removing them completely is better for the plant and looks nicer too.

Where to place your T. Begonia

Never put your Tuberous Begonia in the sun. T. Begonia's are shade loving plants. If you grow Fuchsias, Orchids or Ferns, you will understand the conditions that they like.

For the rest of us, T. Begonias live happily inside during the day. But at night, they must be put outside into the cool with protection from above (porch or veranda). This is essential for the plant to stay alive.

T. Begonias also like to be outside on verandas, porches, balconies, ferneries and shade houses or anywhere there is indirect sunlight and protection from strong winds.

How to Water your Tuberous Begonia

To check if your T. Begonia needs watering, push your thumb into the soil to the first knuckle (about 5cm) and if the soil is moist, it doesn't need watering. 

If the soil is dry, water in about two mugs of water or until the water reaches the top of the pot. Watering may differ from one to three watering's a week. It will depend on your climate and position. But be warned, most T. Begonias die from overwatering, so follow our simple rule .. of thumb! 

What do I do When the Tuberous Begonia Dies Back?

Your T. Begonia will go to sleep for the winter. The flowers, buds and stems will shrivel and fall off. The tuber remains under the soil surface. 

To make sure your T. Begonia will grow again next season, you need to keep the tuber (the hairy potato shaped bulb) dry for the winter months.

Unlike some other plants, you don't need to remove the tuber from the pot. But we suggest you lay the pot on its side (some soil will run out of the pot). The tuber may also slip down. On its side, the pot will protect the tuber from getting damp or wet during the winter months. Store in a dry place.

Its Mid-October or later, and I've Looked in The Pot and The T. Begonia has Started to Sprout

Turn your pot upright and make sure the T. Begonia tuber is in the middle of the pot.
Fill the pot with a good quality potting mix so that the soil is 3cm from the top of the pot.
Sprinkle with any brand slow-release fertiliser, water in and let it sit. This is a good time to put the stake back in the soil, so you don't damage the tuber.

When the T. Begonia sprouts start to turn into stems, start to use the watering formula (thumb up to the first knuckle) again and your T. Begonia will start to grow, bud and flower. You will need to tie the top of the stems to the stake to prevent the new flowers from pulling out the stem.
