Begonia Ruby Red is a popular houseplant known for its beautiful foliage with red undersides and green upper sides. Here are some tips for caring for your Begonia Ruby Red:

  1. Light: Begonia Ruby Red prefers bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can burn the leaves, while too little light can cause the plant to become leggy.

  2. Water: Begonia Ruby Red prefers moist soil. Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry, but be careful not to overwater as it can lead to root rot.

  3. Humidity: Begonia Ruby Red likes high humidity. You can increase the humidity around the plant by placing a tray of water nearby, using a humidifier, or grouping it with other plants.

  4. Temperature: Begonia Ruby Red prefers temperatures between 60-75°F (15-24°C). It is important to keep the plant away from cold drafts and air conditioning.

  5. Soil: Begonia Ruby Red prefers well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter.

  6. Fertilizer: Feed your Begonia Ruby Red with a balanced fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Do not fertilize during the winter months.

  7. Pruning: Prune your Begonia Ruby Red to maintain its shape and encourage bushier growth. You can also remove any yellowing or damaged leaves or stems.

  8. Propagation: Begonia Ruby Red can be propagated by stem cuttings or by division.

  9. Toxicity: Begonia Ruby Red is toxic to pets and humans if ingested. Keep it out of reach of children and pets.

By following these tips, you can help your Begonia Ruby Red thrive and enjoy its beautiful foliage in your home or office.
