GENERAL INFORMATION

  • This superb foliage plant is perfect for bringing a bright splash of colour to your home.
  • The colourful leaves of Begonia rex 'King's Spirit' are individually patterned in silver and moss-green, which contrast sharply with the maroon red stems and veins.
  • This striking house plant is perfect for a lightly shaded spot, where it will create a fabulous focal point.
  • Despite its exotic appearance this Begonia rex hybrid is surprisingly easy to grow. 

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Rex begonias prefer light, rich soil.
  • When planting directly in the ground, a moist, well-drained location is optimal and mulch will keep the roots shaded.
  • In pots, be sure to provide drainage holes.
  • A peat-based potting mix is ideal for containers.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Fertilize in the spring when new growth starts to appear.
  • Feed a Begonia Rex every two weeks with a balanced plant food diluted to ¼ the recommended strength.
  • Feed less in the fall and and not at all in the winter.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Begonia rex requires a bright but lightly shaded spot, well away from the direct glare of the sun.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Water Begonia rex plants freely between spring and autumn, allowing the pot to drain well after each watering.
  • In winter, reduce watering but do not allow the compost to completely dry out.
