Details of Rex Begonias


Rex Begonias thrive in temperatures between 60 – 75 degrees, and thrive readily indoors. When growing your own Rex Begonias, especially in the spring when they grow readily, a light misting of their leaves and slow-release plant food is a must every few weeks to ensure strong, vibrant leaves and a healthy plant.
