Pruning a Begonia

boothbay(7)July 4, 2012

I have pruned plants in the past, mostly with those that show a node. Now, my Begonia shows all nodes occupied with healthy leaves branching out. So how does one prune such a plant? BTW, its of the Hiemalis variety that I speak of. Any actual videos showing this? I did a search with no results. Thanks

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

THe hiemalis/Riegers do grow thickly.I often buy old, bloomed out, overgrown plants when they are marked down, and my method is to just go in and trim the whole thing, it would be just too hard to look for the nodes.With good light they can recover quickly (in my greenhouse).
