Commonly known as: begonia rex
Standard Potting Mix
This Begonia is a Rex hybrid. As the name suggests, the leaves are spiral shaped just like a snail shell. The dark green leaves have a silver varigated stripe as well as pink hairs that become less noticable as the leaves grow bigger.
Special Care Instructions
Needs humidity so be sure to provide either a humidifier or pebble tray. Use moist well-draing soil and water when the top layer is dry to the touch. Avoid direct sunlight because the leaves tend to burn easily.
