Evening Glow Begonia

The Evening Glow Begonia, scientifically known as Begonia ‘Evening Glow,’ is a captivating and colourful hybrid begonia celebrated for its stunning foliage and compact growth habit. Belonging to the Begoniaceae family, Evening Glow begonias are prized for their vibrant leaves, which exhibit a captivating blend of hues ranging from deep greens to fiery oranges and reds. This cultivar is a popular choice for adding a touch of warmth and vibrancy to indoor spaces, such as homes, offices, or conservatories.

Evening Glow Begonias showcase glossy, asymmetrical leaves adorned with intricate patterns and striking colour combinations. The foliage often features splashes of red, orange, pink, and yellow, creating a mesmerizing display of hues reminiscent of a fiery sunset. Unlike some other begonia varieties, Evening Glow begonias are primarily grown for their foliage rather than flowers, although they may produce small, inconspicuous blooms in favourable conditions. With proper care, these begonias can thrive indoors year-round, adding a touch of tropical beauty to any setting.

Watering

Keep the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. Water the begonia thoroughly whenever the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch, ensuring that excess water drains away freely. Avoid allowing the soil to dry out completely between waterings, as this can stress the plant and lead to wilting. Use room-temperature water to avoid shocking the roots.

Feeding

Feed Evening Glow Begonias with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half-strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring through Summer). Avoid over-fertilizing, as this can lead to fertilizer burn. Withhold fertilization during the winter months when growth slows down.

Humidity

They thrive in high humidity environments, so it's beneficial to place them in bathrooms, kitchens, or near humidifiers. Avoid exposing them to drafts or sudden temperature fluctuations, as these can cause stress and leaf drop.
