Illumination begonias need a rich but well-drained soil in a partially shaded garden location. They should receive direct sunlight only early in the morning. Because these are tropical plants, they are most often grown in containers indoors, or if outdoors, in areas with warm winters and comfortable (not overly hot) summers. Excessive heat and humidity in summer will diminish and wither these begonias. When plants begin to yellow in the autumn after flowering, reduce watering to induce the natural winter dormancy. In cold climates, this is the time that the tubers should be lifted and stored inside in a cool, dry location until buds reappear in the spring. They may be replanted in pots or outdoors once danger of frost has passed and soil temperatures are warm.
