Hello plant enthusiasts,
I am a long time member here, mostly lurk in the perennials and tree forum. My indoor gardening has been mainly restricted to an Indian curry plant that I use for cooking, and a bay leaf plant both of which are on my east facing kitchen window.
Having added a new great room to our house this past year,I finally have a plant room to keep me smiling through the long grey winters in Michigan (our old dining room with two windows facing east and south.I have managed to collect some of the usual plants: pothos, dracaena, croton, mother in laws tongue (what an aptly named plant :), philodendron, also a huge schefflera that I rescued from the curbside and soon my first banana tree (Thanks craigslist !).
Anyways, I have this Begonia Bonfire, that I bought from HD this spring and would like to overwinter as a houseplant.
Looking for advice on the best way to keep this begonia happy. Should I prune it back before bringing it in or just keep as it is ? It bloomed beautifully over spring and summer but nothing for the past month, looks healthy but somewhat bare, lots of leaves at the tips of the branches but not so many along the stem and also has a few yellow leaves. I should add that I did not fertilize it at all but did keep it well watered over summer.
