Solenia Begonia

boothbay(7)June 23, 2012

Just bought these beautiful "Dusty Rose" begonias in full bloom. I have been doing the recommended culture of these, full sun mostly and water when dry. Now in a couple of weeks, some of those blooms aged and fell off and now its getting ugly with forked branches. I was told to do light pinching after they drop their blooms..but its not that simple, for me at least. They were blooming from a forked i pinch up to that fork area or past it? Here are a couple of pictures...the best I could do.

Bummer that nobody had anything to say about this. Not one I've heard of before, sure is pretty! How's your plant doing?
