Outdoor Office Plan
Begonias are becoming more popular with plant breeders and many varieties make excellent indoor foliage plants. In particular, Rex begonias, with their unusual colors, patterns, and textures, will make nice houseplants. They can be difficult to grow indoors because they prefer a high humidity, but growing them on a pebble tray helps. Rex begonias also like warm soil and a chance to dry out slightly between waterings.
Fuchsias look very tropical, but they actually enjoy cool temperatures in the 60 – 70 degree F. range. They benefit from a winter rest, so don’t expect a lot of flowers during winter. Bring the plants indoors before frost and trim them to about 6 inches. Place in a cool spot (45-50 degrees F.) with low light. Water lightly, only when the soil feels dry. In spring, move the plant back into a sunny spot and resume watering regularly. New growth should start soon.
