Rhizomatous Begonia revival (Begonia ‘Cachuma’)

I love this Begonia ‘Cachuma’ so much so I was worried when it really started going downhill after being indoors through the hot summer and cold winter. I wasn’t watering it enough and it wasn’t getting enough light.

After moving it back outside, repotting it with some fresh soil and a bit of fertilizer, and giving it regular water, it is bouncing back! I was concerned the main stem wouldn’t grow new leaves but it quickly proved me wrong. This will help revive any rhizomatous Begonia so don’t worry too much if yours looks like mine after living indoors for a while.
