MY BEGONIA HAS BLOOMED CONTINUALLY THROUGH SPRING AND SUMMER. I USE MIRACLE GROW LIQUID PLANT FOOD. THE PLANT IS HARDY AND BEAUTIFUL.

The foliage on this plant is quite interesting. The dark green leaves are covered with white blister-like (raised) spots, which provide unique textural appeal. I have potted, so was outside spring and summer, but inside now and last fall when it was purchased on sale at local nursery. Does fine inside with limited watering.

Has yet to bloom. I suspect due to lack of feeding. Am going to try regular applications of Hasta Grow, an all-purpose organic liquid fertilizer, this spring and see what happens. The foliage is pretty enough to keep even if it never blooms. Would love to hear how it performs from others. (This is the only begonia I have).
