Begonia Rex - Arctic Breeze

$15.00

Begonia Rex are prized for their colourfully patterned and intriguingly shaped leaves. Although they are at home in a shady garden, they are also popular as houseplants. Many people collect and display several varieties. 

These hybrids have been developed to have unusual markings, leaf shapes, and colors. The leaves grow on short leaf stalks, from the underground rhizome. The leaf edges and undersides are covered with short red hairs.

This plant will enjoy a good bright spot within a room without direct sunlight. Watering frequently in warmer months will keep it happy, always making sure the soil is moist and not waterlogged. During the winter cut this down and only water when the topsoil has become dry to touch.

Botanical name: Begonia Rex 'Arctic Breeze'

General plant care tips

Just like us, plants get hungry! To really nurture your plants you will need to feed them some food. A balanced fertiliser, or 'plant food' will provide houseplants with all the nutrients they need to stay strong and encourage new growth. You can find some great plant products in our Plant Care collection. We particularly love this plant food from The Plant Runner, and the seaweed tonic by Munash Organics.

During the warmer months when plants are actively growing they'll need a bit more food and water. During the cooler winter months plants generally slow their growing and won't need as much to eat or drink.
