Q.Should I Prune My Polka Dot Begonia?

Zone 98109 | revellr0113 added on March 17, 2021 | Answered

I’ve had this begonia since January. When I first got it, it was in rough shape with browned leaves and a broken stem. Now it’s growing new leaves weekly and some are very clustered together. I’m wondering if I should prune any or if the plant is okay like this.

I wouldn't. It is just now recovering, so you don't want to send it back into shock.

Wait until it gets too lanky, then you can prune it.

Here is an article that will help you to care for the plant:
