I grow my cane begonia outside but thought I would post it here. In the recent rains the pot got filled up with too much water. I didn't notice it for a few days. I tipped the pot over and let it drain. Have not watered it for a week. It looks a little blah and weary. And there are some watermarks on most of the leaves on this 4 ft. tall plant. Hints? Suggestions?

I have had that happen and after I drain them I put them in a little more sun. The sun helped dry the leaves and the soil.

Leave it on it's side do not set it back up.
