  • Latin Name: Begonia rex Etna
  • Common Name: Painted-Leaf Begonia, Fancy-Leaf Begonia, King Begonia
  • Characteristics: The Begonia rex Etna is an indoor plant with foliage of dark shades with a great amount of character, mainly due to the plants clustered leaf formation. Black is the main colour throughout, with red being the secondary colour for the most-part. The colours appear in blotches and sections, rather than featuring on a full leaf. The King Begonia will use its air-purifying qualities to remove harmful pollutants and unwanted toxins to add great benefits to the room it is placed in.
  • Plant Advice: Begonia Rex Etna should be placed in partial shade. This should be coupled with the avoidance of any direct sunlight as it will cause harmful leaf damage as time goes on. Watering should be carried out when the soil is dry to touch. This can be continued on a once-a-week basis throughout the year, until the Winter dormant period when these levels should drop to once every two weeks.

Rex Begonias, commonly known as King Begonia, are best known for their striking foliage. This Etna variety has a clustered leaf formation that ensures the black and red colouring stands out from all angles. Both colours feature sporadically throughout each leaf, with not one llead featuring just the one colour. This gives this Rex Begonia a eye-catching aspect, with the bold and powerful colours at the forefront of that. King Begonia will use its air-purifying qualities to ensure that the removal of harmful pollutants and unwanted toxins is done efficiently so the living area is fresh and revitalised. The plant will prefer placement in partial shade, with very minimal contact to direct sunlight. Watering the plant when the soil is dry to touch is required, meaning once a week will suffice throughout the year. Until Winter when, due to it being the plants dormant period, you should lower this amount to once every two weeks.
