Begonia Elatior is a hybrid begonia, belonging to the Begoniaceae family, originally bred for indoor cultivation.


Begonia Elatior is a herbaceous plant with lush foliage and colorful flowers, making it an attractive addition to indoor spaces. Its flowers come in various shades, adding vibrancy to any room.


Begonia Elatior is a result of hybridization efforts aimed at creating a begonia variety suitable for indoor cultivation. Its history traces back to the development of hybrid begonias with desirable traits such as prolonged flowering periods and compact growth habits.

Care and Maintenance:

1. Soil: Use a rich, well-draining substrate to promote healthy root growth and prevent waterlogging.

2. Watering: Water regularly, ensuring that the soil remains consistently moist but not waterlogged. Avoid wetting the leaves and flowers to prevent fungal diseases.

3. Fertilization: Apply a liquid fertilizer every 15 days during the growing season (spring and summer) to support vigorous growth and abundant flowering.

4. Support: Provide support with small tutors to prevent the branches from tipping over due to the weight of the flowers.

5. Pruning: Remove wilted flowers and yellowing leaves to encourage the development of new growth and maintain a tidy appearance. Pruning can be done after flowering and before transplanting.

Diseases and Pests:

Begonia Elatior may be susceptible to fungal diseases such as powdery mildew, especially if the foliage remains wet for extended periods. Additionally, monitor for pests such as aphids and spider mites, which can infest indoor plants. Treat any issues promptly with appropriate fungicides or insecticides.
