Watering Begonia

Would it be best to water my flowering begonia from the saucer than the top? I worry about over watering. Many thanks.

It is normally better to water soil at the base of the plants and allow the water to run though the container, discarding any remaining water that may be left in the saucer. The reason for this is to prevent root rot from having plants continually sit in water. If you choose to water from below, you will need to be vigilent in checking that the water is taken up by the plant rather than left sitting in the saucer.
