  • Problem with my begonia

    Created by Riton on

    I have beautiful Begonias but after a rain and long time wet soil something eats them form the center. All the plants die from the center, branch after branch. Can you please help with this problem?
    Thanks,
    Henry.

    Henry – Are you sure that it is an insect causing the problem? It sounds to me like a plant disease, especially since you notice the problem during damp conditions. Check out this site by Pennsylvania State University:

    It sounds like some sort of fungal, bacterial, or viral infection of the plant. You could try treating it with a broad fungicide, such as Sulfur. Find it here!

    Hope this helps!
