Gallery: DIY: How to Trick Begonias into Blooming Early Using a Terrari...

STEP 1:

Fill 2/3 of your pot with potting soil and drop in one begonia tuber with the hollow side up. Add an additional 1/2" of soil over the top of the tuber. TIP: It's a good idea to put your tuber in the soil at a slight angle to ensure that water doesn't sit in the center of the tuber and cause it to rot. Then pop the terrarium dome over your pot and tuber.

MATERIALS:

• Begonia tubers (make sure you use quality tubers that are firm and have no bruises) • Potting soil or a potting mix • Small pot, about 3-4″ in diameter • Terrarrium dome • Dish for the base

(All of these come as part of Longfield Gardens’ begonia terrarium kits)
