I have 18 or so Begonias. Many are in original containers, (when purchased) and others have been in the same pots/soil for years.
One reason, seems my Begonias do best when root-bound, so I'm afraid to up the size.
Am I being silly? lol
It's been a very hot spring, high 90's, so soil dries daily.
I don't mind watering, but some Begonias are so root-bound there isn't room for roots to grow.
Pot sizes range from 2.5" to 8". The majority are in 4".
Should I repot 1 size larger or let be and continue daily watering?
Do Begonias require tall or short pots? Tall pots are getting hard to find. I've looked everywhere..
Plain, plastic pots, nothing ornate. Tall ceramics and clay are available, but I prefer plastic.
Also, what about soil? I have various Begonias, many w/o species ID's.
Is it safe to pot in a little lower pH soil, or not?
I know some here are Begonia experts. Please help.
Thanks much, Toni
