Begonias with fibrous roots and rhizomes, which are generally planted for their foliage, need bright filtered light but not direct full sun. As these plants prefer partial shade.
Dry air is not suitable to grow begonias. The plants should be constantly misted with water if they are in hanging baskets. They can also be stood in their pots on moist pebbles.
Begonias with fibrous roots, rhizomatous roots, and tuberous roots (all begonia types) thrive in standard room temperatures of about 59°F (15°C).
