Plant Features

The Harmony's Fire Breathing Dragon Rex Begonia is a striking and vividly colored variety of Rex Begonia. Known for its dramatic foliage, the leaves of this begonia are intricately patterned with a mix of deep reds, purples, greens, and sometimes silver. The leaves are large and often have a swirling pattern that enhances their dramatic appearance. This variety, like other Rex Begonias, is prized for its ornamental leaves rather than its flowers.

When caring for the Harmony's Fire Breathing Dragon Rex Begonia, it's important to be mindful of several key factors. Browning leaf edges can indicate low humidity or water with high mineral content. Wilting or drooping leaves might suggest overwatering or poor drainage, while pale or fading leaves could be a sign of insufficient light. Direct sunlight should be avoided as it can scorch the leaves. This plant prefers high humidity and consistent soil moisture but is prone to root rot if overwatered. It's also a good idea to watch for common pests like aphids and spider mites.
