Begonia Sahara

North Yorkshire, United Kingdom Gb

Hi everyone,
I have only just planted out my begonias Sahara but when I went to water them this morning some of the leaves have gone white. I can only assume it was because we had quite a cool night last night and they maybe in shock. Can I cut the leaves off and hope that they will grow back from the base?
Any advice appreciated, thanks.

Cold shock would make the whole plant droopy - not just a few leaves. Who knows? Just snip off the affected leaves, give them a little fertilizer & they should be fine.

Is it the leaf it the leaf that is white or is there a fine white powder on them?
