General Information: 

Trailing begonias, also known as hanging begonias, are a popular choice among gardeners and plant enthusiasts due to their cascading growth habit and vibrant flowers. These plants can add a touch of elegance and charm to any garden or indoor space. Trailing begonias are perfect for hanging baskets in the shade.

Trailing begonias thrive in bright but indirect light. They prefer a location with filtered sunlight or partial shade. Avoid exposing them to direct sunlight, as it can scorch their delicate leaves. 

These plants prefer well-draining soil that retains moisture without becoming waterlogged. A mixture of peat moss, perlite, and potting soil works well for trailing begonias. Water them thoroughly when the top inch of soil feels dry, but be careful not to overwater, as it can lead to root rot.

Trailing begonias thrive in temperatures between 60°F and 75°F (15°C to 24°C). If temperatures rise above 75°F for too long it is best to move the basket to deeper shade.

Feed your trailing begonias with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every two weeks during the growing season. This will provide them with the necessary nutrients for healthy growth and abundant flowering. Otherwise for a carefree summer incorporate 3-4 month slow release fertilizer into the soil mix when planting.
