  • Common Name: Painted-Leaf Begonia, Fancy-Leaf Begonia, King Begonia
  • Characteristics: The Begonia rex Merengue is an indoor plant with lighter shades of colouring throughout its foliage. The two colours that feature heavily are a light green and faded pink shade. The green makes up the base colour of the leaf, whilst the pink forms the veining pattern that is common amongst Rex Begonias. This plant is will purify the air with its air-purifying qualities, removing harmful pollutants and unwanted toxins to enable a fresher atmosphere in the room.
  • Plant Advice: Begonia Rex Merengue 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.

King Begonia will get to work on utilising its air-purifying qualities to clean the air and get rid of any harmful pollutants and unwanted toxins, whilst you can care for it by placing it in partial shade and watering it once a week. Partial shade should be partnered with the avoidance of direct sunlight as this will cause leaf damage. Watering once a week should be done when the soil is dry to touch. When Winter comes around, lower this to once every two weeks.
