Planting+

As soon as possible after receiving the Begonia rex, plant it in a flower pot. Choose a pot with holes in the base with a saucer for drainage. Or use an ornamental pot with an inner pot so that the water can be collected. Sprinkle a layer of hydro granules over the bottom of the pot, cover with fresh potting compost and plant the root ball of the Begonia rex at the correct depth. Fill with compost, allowing sufficient space at the top for watering and press firmly. Water generously after planting and place the pot in a cool place in partial shade. Avoid a sunny windowsill as direct sunlight could cause leaf-burn.

Care+


Always keep the compost moderately moist, never let it completely dry out. During the growing period add some plant food when watering on a regular basis. This leaf begonia loves a high humidity. Preferably choose a cooler, light spot and not above the central heating radiator.
 
 

Extra+

Begonia rex hybrids have an exceptionally prettily marked leaf. This Begonia rex 'African Jungle' has slightly 'hairy' leaves with a really magical looking pattern on them. The colours vary from pale green to dark green, silvery grey and reddish purple - the leaf nerves are reddish purple too and the whole takes on a different look depending on where the light falls on it. The leaves can grow as long as 30 cm. You will sometimes get small pink flowers between the large leaves. The variety 'rex' (meaning 'king') indicates just how spectacular this begonia is.
