Plant Features
The Escargot Rex Begonia, with its distinct spiral-centered leaves and striking coloration, is a favorite among houseplant enthusiasts. This variety is named for its unique leaf pattern that resembles a snail's shell (hence 'Escargot'). The leaves are typically a mix of silvery green with dark green accents and a reddish-purple underside, making it a visually stunning addition to any indoor plant collection.

When it comes to caring for the Escargot Rex Begonia, there are a few common issues to be aware of. Browning leaf edges can be a sign of low humidity or over-fertilization. Wilted or drooping leaves often indicate overwatering or poor drainage. If the leaves lose their vibrant color, the plant may be receiving too much direct sunlight. Conversely, insufficient light can lead to leggy growth. Regularly check for pests like aphids and mealybugs, and maintain high humidity and good air circulation to keep the plant healthy.
