Rex Begonia comes in a myriad of obliquely ovate leaf forms, shapes and colorations. This glorious and highly collectable plant originated in India. Though they can be grown in the shade garden as a seasonal annual, they are also grown as houseplants that require only bright indirect light and actually thrive under fluorescent light. They produce flowers, and although they are sometimes pretty, they are inconsequential and should be removed before bloom so all energy goes to preserve the beauty of the foliage. Leaves can grow from 3" to as large as 6"+ on short fleshy stems similar to African Violets and thrive in humid conditions so they are perfect for hot, humid summer gardens. Then at season's end, you can pot them up and bring in to grace your indoor garden and over winter.

Rexes can be easily propagated by rhizome division or leaf cuttings.They can go dormant in winter if relying solely on natural light but don't despair they will return once the longer days recommence. Careful though -- they can be addictive! When you have your first, you will undoubtedly want a variety as they are just so pretty and easy to care for. Only potential problem is over-watering (so always have well-drained soil whether in the garden or a pot). Do not spray or mist as it can invite mildew. The rhizome is lateral, so if potting up, you can use a wider, shallower pot, as long as it has room to grow. You will get one well-rooted plant in a 3"-4" nursery pot. 

Please note: If for any reason you believe your plant arrives in distressed condition, or damaged, please take a picture and send to me immediately. I will either send you another plant or refund, but I can do nothing if you do not notify me of the plant's condition with photo on arrival. Also, some of the pictures may be of mature or blooming plants. You are getting what is represented in the description, not a mature blooming plant.

Growing Tips: If your gardens hits a drought period of low humidity, be sure that they get sufficient moisture to the soil (but not by overhead watering) and add some light mulch to help retain moisture and generate humidity. Rely on rainwater, if possible or supply non-chlorinated water. Growing inside, drainage is paramount. Water heavily, but not often, waiting until the soil is light and dry. Feed monthly April to August with a water soluble high nitrogen food.

Now Shipping ...

Items listed as "Ships Now" ship within 1-2 business days (non-holiday Monday-Friday). We reserve the option to hold small seed orders when a variety (as noted on the listing as "coming") is not yet in until the order can be filled completely. For larger orders, we ship what is available and back-order the remainder. Live plants ship when weather and your zone permit. By the way, once your order leaves our hands it will be in the hands of the shipping carrier, usually USPS, which is experiencing delays due to high volume.
