Begonia 'Rex'

$ 24.00 Sold out
The Begonia 'Rex' is an absolute showstopper of a houseplant, hailing from the exotic lands of India. Its foliage showcases a dramatic palette of colors, featuring shades of burgundy, silver, and deep green that dance across the leaves in a unique, almost psychedelic pattern. Further enhancing the visual spectacle, the leaves are accentuated with an intriguing texture - a curious blend of smooth and wrinkled that begs to be touched. The plant grows up to 12 inches in height and width, providing a bold, yet manageable, statement in your home or office. The Begonia 'Rex' displays a penchant for spreading its beauty around, sprouting offsets that can be used to propagate the plant, thus extending its visual impact in your space. When grown in a hanging basket or on a high shelf, the plant's leaves cascade down, creating a captivating "waterfall" effect. Alternatively, in a pot or terrarium, the plant grows upright, displaying its mesmerizing leaves in a vertical fashion, making it an ideal centerpiece for any setting. Growth is moderate for the Begonia 'Rex', which makes it an excellent choice for both the novice and experienced plant lover. It has a somewhat fleshy stem at the base where it meets the soil, adding a unique element to its overall appearance. But the spectacle doesn't end with its foliage. In the colder months, look for the Begonia 'Rex' to produce clusters of small, delicate pink or white flowers that provide a lovely contrast to its dark, moody leaves. These flowers open up during the day and close up at night, adding a charming element of surprise to its daily display. As much as it is a feast for the eyes, the Begonia 'Rex' is also a low-maintenance plant, making it an ideal addition to any indoor garden. It prefers indirect light and slightly moist soil, making it a versatile plant that can thrive in various indoor environments. Experience the visual delight that is the Begonia 'Rex', and add a touch of exotic drama to your indoor plant collection. Its stunning colors, unique textures, and easy-care nature make it a must-have for any plant enthusiast.

Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
