The Begonia "Irene Nuss" is a hybrid with exceptional vigour which was first registered in 1971. It has since then become one of the most popular cane cultivars and with good reason.

Irene is a very robust cane type. The foliage has a strong red hue and the soft pink blooms are produced with profession in late Summer into Autumn. As with most begonia Irene should be kept dry during the winter months, allows to dry out between watering at other times and liquid fed with each watering over the warm months.

Botanical Name
Begonia "Irene Nuss"

Size (Can grow to)
Begonia "Irene Nuss" grows to a maximum of about 1.2-1.5m tall. The leaves are usually asymmetric, extending to approximately 20 cm in length

Position
Bright lit position out of direct sunlight. They do not like getting too cold. Over the winter try not to let them sit in an area that will get below 15 degrees Celcius.

Watering
When the top is dry give it a very good soak. They love high humidity so a pebble tray works well. Avoid wetting the leaves too much.
