  • Latin Name: Begonia rex Spitfire
  • Common Name: Painted-Leaf Begonia, Fancy-Leaf Begonia, King Begonia
  • Characteristics: The Begonia rex Spitfire is an indoor plant with some gorgeous colours within its foliage. Each leaf forms to a neat tip, with the deep red centre colour joined by a cream shade at either side of the red hue. The deep red then returns in the form of a border to finish off the clustered, colourful foliage look. The King Begonia also offers air-purifying qualities, removing both harmful pollutants and unwanted toxins, therefore adding great benefits to the room it is placed in.
  • Plant Advice: Begonia Rex Spitfire 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 Spitfire variety has a stunning deep red colour at its core, which is joined by a cream inner border and another deep red outer border. The foliage forms in a clustered fashion, with the fine tip at the end of each leaf adding character to its appearance. King Begonia will use its air-purifying qualities to create a stress-free living area, with the removal of harmful pollutants and unwanted toxins proving beneficial to the surrounding atmosphere. In placement, partial shade is recommended, with any direct sunlight being avoided to maintain healthy leaves. Watering the plant when the soil is dry to touch should be carried out, making once a week a suitable amount. When the plants dormant period of Winter approaches, lower this to once every two weeks.
