Plant Features

The Fireworks Rex Begonia is a visually stunning plant, renowned for its vivid and colorful foliage. This variety of begonia is named 'Fireworks' due to its explosive array of colors and patterns. The leaves are typically large and textured, featuring a blend of purples, pinks, greens, and silvers, often with a metallic sheen. The intricate patterns and bright colors make the Fireworks Rex Begonia a standout in any indoor garden.

In terms of care, the Fireworks Rex Begonia requires some attention to thrive. Brown leaf edges or spots may indicate that the air is too dry or the plant is being watered with hard water. Wilted or drooping leaves can signify overwatering or poor drainage. If the leaves start losing their color or vibrancy, it may need more light. However, direct sunlight should be avoided as it can scorch the leaves. Consistent high humidity is crucial for this plant, so regular misting or a humidifier can be beneficial. Watch for common pests like mealybugs and spider mites.
