Did you Know?
Although these beautiful plants, often referred to as “fancy-leafed” Begonias, are fun and easy to care for, there are a couple of concerns. They can be susceptible to root rot if overwatered, so your best bet is to make sure the soil is allowed to dry out slightly between waterings. Additionally, some varieties of Rex Begonia plants can be toxic to pets and humans if ingested, so make sure to keep them out of reach.
