Why do the leaves keep dying ???

So my begonia leaves keep dying so young and I don’t know why. What do I do ??? #help #Begonia
2ft to light, direct
3” pot with drainage
Last watered 6 days ago
Ugh I downloaded this app solely because I need help with this exact same plant. They are a nightmare. Take my suggestion with a grain of salt, but they might be in too big of a pot, contributing to overwatering? Especially if they don’t get too much light. What’s the white stuff on the soil?
@StrongArugula oh it diatomaceous earth food grade, helps with the gnats
@StrongArugula perhaps your right tho, maybe I should try chopping and repotting in a smaller pot. But I don’t think it’s over watering, that blue stick tells me when the soil starts getting dry.
Begonias are so fussy! So (you may know this already) only water when the top 2 inches of the soil is dry. One of my begonia died because I totally overwatered her even though I she looked and even get dry to the touch. I nursed her back but she has never gotten back to when I first got her. Looks like the leaves are a bit burnt?
You might be overwatering it οΏΌ
@EagerLuscious I’m thinking it might be a plant food I tried recently. It killed another one of my plants
@StrongArugula so I think you hit the nail on the head ! This root system does NOT fit this pot. So imma repot in a smaller pot and hope for best 🀞
