Should Hairy Begonia And African Violets Be Showered

Question From: B. D'Arrigo - Martinez, California, United States
Q: Can I shower my Begonia hairy leaves? I do with my african violent, but I am not sure about begonias. Can you advise me please?

It is not recommended to spray the leaves hairy (Rex) begonias or violets as it may cause spotting. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
