June 22, weather was fine after several day's continuous rain. I was wandering in our garden to see if there is anything new. Behind the house where I am keeping potted plants while they are not displayed, I glimpsed something that were not there before.
Begonia. I replanted two stocks that formed buds before, and abandoned remaining soil in this large pot. After all, surprisingly all three stocks are live.
I dug out the stock and replanted in a separate pot. It was too bad that I couldn't find proper pot, and decided to use one a little too shallow and heaped up soil around the stock. I have to keep it well drained because it is not so strong against both hot and cold seasons.
The stocks replanted before have already started to grow fast. One of them started blooming. It seems they are vigorous than I thought.
This is a picture of them in full bloom last June.
In summer it is damaged, so I moved it to shaded area and had it survive by keeping it fairly dry. In winter I kept it inside of a room, but all leaves went out. I watered it a little to maintain some humidity while worrying it might have died. I am pleased that I did my best.
