Begonia Masoniana Rock

Begonia Masoniana Rock Care Guide


Begonia Masoniana Rock prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some shade but avoid placing it in direct sunlight as this can scorch its leaves. A north or east-facing window is ideal. If placed near a south or west-facing window, ensure it is shielded by a sheer curtain to filter the intense sunlight.


Keep the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. Overwatering can lead to root rot, while underwatering can cause the leaves to wilt. Water when the top inch of the soil feels dry to the touch. Use room temperature water to avoid shocking the plant. Ensure that the pot has drainage holes to allow excess water to escape.


Begonia Masoniana Rock thrives in high humidity environments. Aim for a humidity level of at least 50%. You can maintain humidity by placing the plant on a tray filled with pebbles and water or by using a humidifier. Mist the plant occasionally, especially during dry winter months.


The ideal temperature range for Begonia Masoniana Rock is between 65-75°F (18-24°C) during the day. Avoid exposing the plant to temperatures below 60°F (15°C) as it is sensitive to cold drafts.


Use a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength during the growing season (spring and summer). Apply fertilizer once a month. Avoid fertilizing during the dormant season (fall and winter) as the plant's growth slows down.


Begonia Masoniana Rock is mildly toxic if ingested by pets and humans. Keep the plant out of reach of children and pets to prevent accidental ingestion. If ingested, seek medical attention immediately.

Additional Care Information

Repot the Begonia Masoniana Rock every 1-2 years using a well-draining potting mix. Prune the plant to maintain its shape and encourage bushy growth. Remove any dead or yellowing leaves. Begonia Masoniana Rock is sensitive to salts and minerals in tap water. Use filtered or distilled water to avoid mineral buildup in the soil.


Yellowing leaves: This can be a sign of overwatering or underwatering. Adjust your watering schedule accordingly. Wilting: This can indicate both overwatering and underwatering. Check the soil moisture and adjust watering as needed. Pest infestations: Begonia Masoniana Rock can be susceptible to pests like aphids, mealybugs, and spider mites. Treat with neem oil or insecticidal soap to control the infestation. Leaf drop: This can occur due to sudden temperature changes, low humidity, or overwatering. Maintain consistent care conditions to prevent leaf drop.
