Care instructions:

Location: Begonia luxurians prefers a light to semi-shade location with indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight as this can cause leaf burn. A spot near an east or west window is often ideal.

Temperature: Begonia luxurians thrives at moderate room temperatures between 18-24°C. Avoid extreme temperature fluctuations and make sure the plant is protected from draughts.

Watering: Begonia luxurians prefers even moisture in the soil, but waterlogging should be avoided. Allow the top layer of soil to dry slightly between waterings before watering again. However, avoid letting the soil dry out completely as this can lead to leaf loss.

Humidity: Begonia luxurians prefers higher humidity. You can increase the humidity by placing the plant on a saucer filled with water or by spraying it regularly with water. However, make sure the plant is not in standing water to prevent root rot.

Fertilisation: Begonia luxurians should be fertilised with a balanced houseplant fertiliser every 2-4 weeks during the growing season from spring to autumn. In winter, fertilisation can be reduced or suspended.

Repotting: Begonia luxurians should be repotted every 1-2 years into a larger pot with good drainage holes to provide space for root growth.

Leaf care: Regularly remove dead leaves and carefully clean the leaves of dust to maintain the health and appearance of the plant.
