Begonia Foliosa Miniata (Fuchsia Begonia)

These delicate-looking plants have small, oval leaves with a glossy texture. The leaves are borne on long, thin stems which begin to arch over as they get longer. Small, waxy, succulent-looking, shell-pink flowers appear in clusters between autumn and spring. They need some kind of support if they are to be seen to best effect. Display with green foliage groups in an informal setting. They can look good if allowed to trail from a hanging basket.

Mini-climate
Warm, sunny.

Size
Begonia foliosa can grow to about 3 feet in height, with a spread of about 20 inch. Pinch out growing tips to maintain bushy growth. Small plants are offered for sale.

Feeding
Feed with standard liquid fertilizer once every two weeks during flowering.

Potting
Repot every spring using an equal-parts mixture of soil-based and peat-based potting mixture. If you don't want to move an older plant into a larger pot, topdress instead.

Special points
Water less in winter.

You have to express more your opinion to attract more readers, because just a video or plain text without any personal approach is not that valuable. But it is just form my point of view
