Begonias will grow in a shaded environment, but not total shade. The more variegated the leaves are, the more light they should have. Do not overwater begonias, and make sure they have adequate air ventilation. In the shade, it's best not to water them at night. Feed regularly throughout the growing season. Can be grown indoors through the winter with minor leaf and bloom drop. Keep long stems pinched to promote fuller growth.
