Begonia Rex Magic Colours
Begonia rex Magic Colour is also known as the painted leaf begonia and it's not difficult to see why. The foliage is striking, with an intriguing leaf pattern.
This particular begonia rex has maroon leaves on the undersides with pink mottling and a 'halo' with a dark margin.
Likes a light position but out of full sun.
Can also cope with a fairly shady spot.
Likes high humidity. Spray the air around the plant with misted water in order to keep the foliage looking fresh.
Can produce small flowers but the plant is grown for its foliage rather than flowers.
If cared for well it is Long-lived.
Feed during the growing summer season only.
Can be pruned back in the autumn and will re-sprout with fresh leaves.
Supplied in a 7cm pot.
Your plant's pot should have holes in the bottom so it is able to drain water easily.
If reusing a pot that had other plants in it, it is recommended you wash the pot, killing any mould or bacteria.
Do not over water your plant as the roots will rot.
Most plants need to be kept by a good source of natural light.
You should fertilise your plant every two months. You can use all purpose fertiliser.
Any dead or fallen leaves should be removed to prevent bacteria and mould. Dead branches should also be removed.
