Rex Begonia 'Jive' - 4.5"


Sometimes called painted-leaf begonias, Begonia Rex are well known for their spectacular leaf colors, and this neon lime Begonia Rex Jive is an absolute stunner. Their leaves are quite large and colored in various shades of green, red, silver, and purple. Grown mainly for their spectacular foliage, their blooms tend to be small and less showy, but are always lovely just the same. Rhizomatous Begonias have a thickened stem called the rhizome which develops usually right underneath the surface of the soil, and all flowers, sprouts, & leaves come from the rhizome, as well.

This plant is considered to be TOXIC to dogs and cats.

Botanical Name:  Begonia Rex-Cultorum


Bright, indirect light. They love, love, love sun.


Weekly, when soil is dry. Bottom watering recommended during warm months.

Pot & Soil: 

Use an African Violet soil mix due to their specific needs. We do not recommend repotting before at least 30 days after you receive your plant from Get Rootsy.
