Reigel or Riegel Begonias

angelbuck(z9 LA)March 13, 2006

I bought this Begonia from super walmart. From what I have read, it is hard to get these Begonia's to reflower once the blooms are spent. If this is true, do they still make good foilage plants? I have mine where it gets a lot of morning light, and I bottom feed it. I have been having it for a week now, and I can tell it has grown some since then. I would like to get it to rebloom because the flowers are beautiful, the leaves also look nice though. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Angel

hiya. you've got a RiegeR begonia. they are typically sold as bloom-n-throw plants...that is, a lot of people just chuck them once they blooms are spent. i don't have a lot of experience with these, but you might want to check an older post on the forum on this subject. i had one that dropped leaves along with flowers and was pretty bare after the bloom. good luck,
