  • Latin Name: Begonia rex Jive
  • Common Name: Painted-Leaf Begonia, Fancy-Leaf Begonia, King Begonia
  • Characteristics: The Begonia rex Jive is an indoor plant with stunning, green foliage. The light green colour fills any room with an eye-catching brightness at all times, with the clustered foliage ensuring the colour pops in any room it is placed in. Also featured on the leaves is a thin, deeply coloured border to round off the plants look. 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 Jive 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 Jive variety has a main colour on its leaves that allows it to standout from the crowd within any indoor setting. The bright green colour fills the leaves, with a deeply coloured border outlining it round the edges. The clustered form of evergreen leaves brings that vibrant colour out once more, with the great amount of leaves making it hard to ignore. King Begonia will use its air-purifying qualities to ensure that the removal of harmful pollutants and unwanted toxins is carried out, creating a fresh and revitalised area to live in. Place the plant in partially shaded areas, with next-to-no contact with direct sunlight, whilst ensuring you water it once a week when the soil is dry to touch. Then, when the plants dormant period of Winter comes around, you should lower this amount to once every two weeks.

Please Note: Images are for illustrative purposes only and designed to be a representation of the item(s) being sold. Depending on seasonality, deciduous plants may be supplied in their dormant state and without leaves. Plants may also be pruned back, lower than stated heights, to encourage new growth.
