LIGHT

Begonia Elatior Yellow Blitz will thrive in sun or shade.

WATER

Provide your Begonias with plenty of water as they do not like to dry out completely. During hot and dry times, more watering may be required, and during rainy times, less watering may be needed. Be sure to avoid splashing water on the foliage and blooms when watering, as this can cause diseases.

FOOD

Fertilize 1–2 times a month using a liquid fertilizer or add a slow-release fertilizer to the soil according to instructions.

ADDITIONAL CARE

To encourage new flower growth on your Begonias, remove spent blooms in a practice known as deadheading. Removing the dead flowers will help promote additional growth throughout the season.
