Wilting leaves

WeepingWillow(2B MB CA)October 7, 2005

Greetings to all!

I have an indoor Rex Begonia, and noticed that its lower leaves are limp and wilting. I read recently that this begonia likes high humidity and have been misting it often. Am I over-misting? Why are the leaves are wilting?

Thank You!

wilting leaves are a sign that it could be too dry or too wet...check the soil. though rexes like humidity, they don't like to have their roots wet.

I've been out of town for a couple of days, but just wanted to post a thank you for your advice, Ming. I will keep an eye on my begonia, and try to adjust the amount that I am watering. Much appreciated!
