Sanitation of media and growing conditions is critical. Greenhouse production recommended for best environmental controls. Avoid use of overhead irrigation. Do not crowd plants as this can lead to more disease problems and stretched plants. Do not plant too deep.
Begonia T REX™ ‘Ruby Slippers’
One of the most fantastic Begonias we have ever seen! Deep ruby red leaves are super glossy with a saucy, little black stripe on the mid rib. Excellent for a cooler greenhouse, but performs just as well with heat.
