Dino Begonia | Dino Rex Begonia

I have leaves that resemble dinosaur skin, hence my name. I'm pretty special too - if you ever see me available, snap me up!

Useful to know:

Origin

I am native to moist subtropical and tropical climates.

Height/Growth

I can grow up to 18" tall and wide.

Light

I prefer shaded, humid conditions and rich, aerated soil, like that found on the forest floor.

Water

Look at the container’s soil and if the top has just dried, water until it runs out of the pot’s bottom drain holes. Begonias also love humidity so make sure you mist me daily!

Temperature

I grow best in a temperature range of 15-22°C.

Feeding

Concentrated fertiliser will burn my leaves, and too much water will cause me to rot!

Grooming

Tidy me up by pinching off dead leaves at my base.

Care

If the edges of the foliage turn brown and looks burned, the Rex begonia is too close to the window. If it starts growing long and gangly reaching towards the light, it’s not getting enough sunlight.

Toxicity

I contain soluble calcium oxalates, which are toxic to cats and dogs.

Fact

I am closely related to melons, cucumbers and pumpkins.
