Rex Begonia: The 47 Most Stunning Varieties for Your Garden
Rex Begonias are prized for having stunning foliage. The cultivar features an extensive array of hues, textures, and shapes. Bright colours can be seen on new growth on Rex begonias in the spring. Numerous species have unusually coloured foliage that is multicoloured.
The plants occasionally bloom throughout the year, but their stunning foliage is the main reason they are grown. Winter is a resting season for Rex begonias during which they do not actively grow. These begonias are perfect for growing on windowsills in areas with partial sunlight. Awe-inspiring to behold always! Rex Begonias are friendly and easy-going houseplants.
As a houseplant, grow Rex begonia in a light to medium location. When the potting mix has just begun to dry, water Rex begonias. They can rot if the soil doesn't dry out sufficiently, so it's better to keep them slightly too dry than too wet.
Although Rex begonias don't require quite as much humidity as many other exotic houseplants, you should increase humidity in the winter if your home has dry air to prevent the leaf tips from drying out and turning brown.
Rex Begonias aren't heavy feeders, so you can fertilize them as little as once or twice a year. However, fertilise them more frequently with a general-purpose houseplant fertiliser if you'd like them to grow more quickly (following the directions on the packaging). Rex begonias should not be consumed by either people or animals.
Grow your Rex begonia in a container that matches the hues of the foliage to give it some flair. Rex begonias make excellent terrarium plants. Get suggestions for terrariums from our experts! Find out more about Rex and other begonia varieties.
