Plant Features

The Plum Paisley Rex Begonia is a captivating variety of the Rex Begonia family, celebrated for its ornate and colorful foliage. The leaves of the Plum Paisley variety are particularly striking, featuring a mix of deep plum, green, and silver hues, often with a metallic sheen. The foliage typically has a swirling pattern that enhances its visual appeal, making it a favored choice for indoor plant enthusiasts looking for a plant with a dramatic presence.

Caring for the Plum Paisley Rex Begonia requires attention to a few specific needs. Browning leaf edges can be a sign of low humidity or water with high mineral content. Overwatering can lead to root rot, indicated by yellowing or wilting leaves. Insufficient light can cause a loss of the vibrant coloration in the leaves, while too much direct sunlight can burn them. This plant prefers high humidity, so regular misting or using a humidifier is beneficial. Checking for pests such as aphids and spider mites, and maintaining good air circulation, are also important for the plant's health.

In all my years of buying plants which must be shipped to me, never have I seen plants or shipping containers of this quality. My Rex Begonia plants were so well protected that you would never guess they had been on quite a journey to get to me. I can only sing the highest of praises! I most certainly will be a repeat customer!
