Given some humidity and filtered light Begonia masoniana is not difficult grow. It is best watered below the foliage to prevent spotting and mildew and can be fertilised with a diluted liquid fertiliser every 4 weeks while in active growth.
Watering needs to carried out once the top part of the soil begins to dry a little.
The temperature should not fall below 13C (50F) or the plant will suffer.
