Rex Begonia Dining Room

Elegant Rex begonia plants (front and center back) suit the ambience of a traditional or casual dining room. The plant tends toward the short side, making it a perfect complement to a table or sideboard. Average to bright light keeps colorful foliage looking its best, and you can always shift plants from window ledge to serving table for a living centerpiece. Rex begonia (Begonia rex) succumbs to overwatering easily. Costa Farms’ experts recommend keeping soil on the dry side to avoid that issue. Instead of watering when soil is dry, wait one more day before giving plants a drink. The taller plant on the table is a Chinese evergreen (Aglaonema).
