Morocco Rhizomatous Begonias are flowering begonias, but are mostly grown for their unusual foliage. Their textured leaves are red underneath and they boast a compact mounding habit that makes for beautiful hanging baskets or floor pots. Your customers will appreciate the diversity this plant brings to your retail space.


Growing Tips

For best results with Morocco Rhizomatous Begonias, use a constant feed program of 150 ppm N with a balanced fertilizer to maximize color development. Maintain a pH between 6.0 - 6.5.

Pinching

 

No pinching is required for Morocco Rhizomatous Begonias, but an occasional trim can help shape your pot.

Spacing

 

Morocco Begonias should be spaced adequately to allow airflow and light penetration between the foliage. Usually 12-18” will be enough, depending on pot size.

Height Control

Morocco Rhizomatous Begonias naturally crown in a rosette shape, so no PGRs are necessary.

Pests

 

Aphids can be attracted to Morocco Begonias.

Disease

 

Morocco can be susceptible to the fungal disease powdery mildew. To treat, spray the infected plants with a fungicide (including neem oil, sulfur, lime-sulfur, or potassium bicarbonate). Avoid overhead watering and space/prune plants for good airflow to reduce humidity. Remember not to compost any infected plant as the wind can carry this fungus to healthy plants.

Also, watch for botrytis while the days are short. This grey rot is usually associated with wet or humid conditions. You can prevent botrytis by allowing the plant to dry out between waterings, allowing for good airflow in your greenhouse, and spacing to allow the sun to penetrate to the soil level. The most common chemicals used to treat botrytis are Medallion and Banrot. Use them as a drench according to each label’s instructions.

Planting Morocco Liners

 

  1. We recommend planting 4 starter plants per 10 inch basket. Use a well-drained soil in your baskets and plant your starter plants deep, allowing the ellepot to be completely covered by the soil. If you are planting 4” pots, 1 plant per pot should be sufficient. Plant it directly in the middle of your pot.
  2. No pinching is necessary. Watch these plants grow and delight your customers!

Rooted Cuttings

Cuttings vary in size between different plant families. These rooted starter plants will arrive ready to be transplanted in to your final container. If they are to be used in a landscape application, you will need to establish them in a 4 inch pot or an 1801 before planting outside.
