Begonia rex 'Sri Lanka

14.99 $

Begonia rex 'Sri Lanka' is a captivating variety of Begonia rex, renowned for its spectacular foliage. This plant is distinguished by its large, wavy, colorful leaves, which can feature a dazzling mix of green, red, silver and sometimes purple shades. Sri Lanka' is characterized by its intricate patterns and velvety texture, making it an eye-catcher in any interior space.

Origin: Begonias rex are native to subtropical and tropical regions of East Asia. The 'Sri Lanka' variety has been selected for its unique aesthetic qualities, even though it shares the humid, shady natural habitat of its cousins.

Growth: Begonia rex 'Sri Lanka' grows moderately. Indoors, it prefers to be placed in conditions that mimic its natural habitat, making it an excellent plant for adding color and texture to well-lit rooms.

Flowers: Although Begonia rex can produce flowers, they are often considered less spectacular than its decorative foliage. Flowers may appear on upright stems, but the main interest lies in the leaves.

Light: Prefer bright indirect light. Too much direct light can burn the leaves, while too little light can lead to a loss of color and vitality in the foliage.

Watering: Requires regular watering, keeping the soil evenly moist but not soggy. Avoid excess water to prevent root rot.

Substrate: A well-draining mix is crucial. A mix of houseplant potting soil with perlite or peat moss is often recommended to maintain moisture balance.

Temperature: Prefers moderate temperatures and high humidity. Protect from extremely cold temperatures and cold drafts.

Toxicity : Toxic plant
