Rex Begonia Plant
About Plant- Rex begonia (Begonia rex-cultorum) is a semi-tropical perennial plant normally grown as an outdoor container plant or houseplant.
Begonia rex is one of the most beautiful and stunning plants. Sometimes called painted-leaf begonias or fancy-leaf begonias, these plants are known for their showy, sometimes jaw-dropping leaf coloration. These plants are grown almost exclusively for their foliage—their blooms tend to be small and less showy, so many growers pinch off blooms to maintain breathtaking leaf displays.
Rex Begonia Plant Care
Light- Rex begonias like bright, indirect light year-round.
Soil- Airy, light, fast-draining soil is best for rex begonias.
Water- Rex begonias like regular water but hate being overwatered. Let the surface of the soil get dry to the touch before watering.
Temperature and Humidity- Rex begonias like moderate temperatures (60 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit) and moderately high humidity (around 50 percent).
Fertilizer- Use liquid fertilizer weekly at quarter strength, or biweekly at half strength.
