  • Latin Name: Begonia rex Salsa
  • Common Name: Painted-Leaf Begonia, Fancy-Leaf Begonia, King Begonia
  • Characteristics: The Begonia rex Salsa is an indoor plant with foliage full of unique shades. The dark shaded centre forms out into a pink, before a light green is bordered by a dark green outline to finish. Coming together in a clustered leaf formation, this plant is easily appreciated from all angles. The King Begonia will make use of its air-purifying qualities by removing harmful pollutants and unwanted toxins from the air, quickly being replaced by a fresh and revitalised atmosphere.
  • Plant Advice: Begonia Rex Salsa 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 Salsa variety is one that shows off a beautiful array of colours, including pink, light green and dark green, all showing themselves in a seaped out foliage design to catch the eye of people passing by or visiting the home. The clustered foliage of the King Begonia will ensure that any home, office or other indoor space benefits from the plant, with the use of its air-purifying qualities helping this as well. Partial shade is best for situating the plant in, with direct sunlight not being appreciated by Rex Begonias due to potential leaf damage. Watering should be carried out when the soil is dry to touch, making once a week a suitable amount throughout the year. When Winter comes around however, you should lower this to once every two weeks as this is the plants dormant period.
