Begonia rex Etna – King Begonia
Rex Begonias, commonly known as King Begonia, are best known for their striking foliage. This Etna variety has a clustered leaf formation that ensures the black and red colouring stands out from all angles. Both colours feature sporadically throughout each leaf, with not one llead featuring just the one colour. This gives this Rex Begonia a eye-catching aspect, with the bold and powerful colours at the forefront of that. King Begonia will use its air-purifying qualities to ensure that the removal of harmful pollutants and unwanted toxins is done efficiently so the living area is fresh and revitalised.
The plant will prefer placement in partial shade, with very minimal contact to direct sunlight. Watering the plant when the soil is dry to touch is required, meaning once a week will suffice throughout the year. Until Winter when, due to it being the plants dormant period, you should lower this amount to once every two weeks.
