Planting Begonia Bulbs, How Many Tubers Per Pot

 

 

 

The best performance of tuberous begonias is achieved when a relatively large pot is used, 8” or larger. Good root systems will result from using large pots and frequent drying of soil will be avoided. A good rule of thumb for upright begonias is to choose a pot 4x the diameter of the tuber.
