I want my begonias to thrive. However I've been having some troubles with the ones I've had shipped over to me. I have one begonia that I purchased at a local home depot and it is doing absolutely wonderful outside on my patio. But the ones I've received online don't seem to be doing very well at all. They are much younger plants then the one I purchased from home depot and I feel they are struggling to thrive. Instead of growing new branches they wilt away one by one. I'm not completely sure what I am doing wrong to make them this way. I feel its been long enough since they move that they should be growing and improving in health by now. I don't water them very often because they tend to get worse if I water them to much + they are inside because last time I put one outside it freaked out and completely wilted. I am at my wits end with begonias even though I love them so much I feel that it shouldnt be a struggle just to keep them from not wilting. It is also frustrating because when I look up begonias online everyone says that begonias are extremely hardy. How is it possible that I am able to weaken or kill the most hardy of plants yet have the ability to keep the more fragile plants alive?
I guess I just need as much advice on how to make a begonia thrive as much as possible because I am ready for them to be able to fend for themselves.
