The American Begonia Society calls Begonia rex “the showboat of the begonia world.” That may be, but the king begonia, or Begonia Rex Cultorum Group as they are more formally known, are just fabulous, coming in a wide range of colors, sizes and patterns. Our Begonia Rex are a shimmering metallic purple and silver. The Begonia rex species from which all the plants were bred comes from Assam, northern India, and requires a lot of humidity to thrive.
• Light: Low to bright, indirect light
• Water: Water and keep moist but not soggy
• Considerations: Can go dormant in winter but it doesn't mean it's dead
