• Light: Strawberry begonia prefers bright, but not direct sunlight. An east- or even west-facing window is perfect. Be careful of letting them get too hot; they dislike heat.
  • Water: These fast growers like a lot of water during the growing season. As with other hairy-leaved plants, avoid getting water on their leaves to reduce the risk of fungal disorders. During winter, reduce watering but don't let it dry out completely. Don't be alarmed if growth dramatically slows down or stops during the winter.
  • Fertilizer: Feed weekly during the growing season with a weak liquid fertilizerthat includes micronutrients and encourages blooming. Controlled release fertilizer pellets are also excellent.
  • Soil: A light, fast-draining potting soil is perfect. You can use fortified soils.
