(1 customer review)

$24.99

Begonia rex, the species. There are several Begonia rex species circulating, but we believe this is the real one. This plant was originally collected in Yunnan, China. The large leaves have dark olive green areas in the center of the leaf and on the leaf margin. Between these two green areas is a wide band of silver. The back of the leaf is red. The leaf blade is sparsely covered with long white hairs. These hairs also densely cover the leaf petiole. The flowers are light pink. See the picture in the photo gallery. This species likes extra humidity. It will grow well in a humid greenhouse or terrarium.

Care of Begonia rex:
Shade to partial shade, temp. 50 to 95 degrees, it is about 10 to 12 inches tall. allow getting fairly dry between waterings.

Family: Begoniaceae

***Note: This plant is shipped in a 3.5 – 4 inch pot. By purchasing this plant, you are agreeing to the terms and conditions of this sale. For more information, please see the “What to Expect” tab under the “About Us” menu as well as the FAQs.

    No one is really noticing this begonia compared to other ones. I received one in perfect condition, the leaves have a beautiful texture and green-silver rough banding as seen in the photos. Pictures do not to it justice!
