It’s very common for #newgrowth to hide under the older leaves of begonias

I love the colour. Can I ask a stupid question. Don't plants.need some green leaves to be able to feed ?

comment
docthrill

@charlotte some plants have no green at all and grow just fine. I don’t understand the science of it but there just as happy as the green ones. Like red algae for instance.

@charlotte I do research on every plant I bring home so I can properly care for them and I’m not the smartest for sure. Plants are living and so is a pet, I try to think of them as my babies.

I really love this #begonia it’s small but when it exposes new heavy growth, it’s going to be incredible. Next month and a half should be that time. Winter leaves on begonias are not there true colors anyway #foliagefriday

Yes, they are very small. Although one of my rhizatomous begonias flowered last year and there were quite a few. Doubt I will have any this year as I’ve pruned the stems to try and get them to bush out a little more.

Mine was down to 1 leaf I put it under grow light and its coming back with a vengeance! So excited because in the summer it was ridiculous

comment
docthrill

@heatherdirtyhands I’ve tossed a few begonias thinking they were dead but @cyndi set me straight and I started saving them and I’ve been successful because they do come back every after loosing all but a couple leaves. Lights do work great but the green house environment works the best

I dont have a green house sadly @docthrill also I hope @cyndi is ok haven't heard from her or seen her on here in awhile. Guess taking a break....
