16" x 10" wooden basket containing two large Rex begonia plants in separate gallon pots. The Rex begonias are some of the most stunning houseplants. Sometimes called painted-leaf begonias or fancy-leaf begonias, these plants are known for their large (up to 6"), colorful leaves. Preferred growing conditions include bright, indirect light year-round, or fluorescent lighting. Keep evenly moist but do not mist; plant in airy, light, fast-draining soil. Fertilize biweekly at half strength of container recommendations. These plants are great as annuals in the summer garden too, but will not tolerate freezing. This begonia is rhizomatous, growing from a thick, fleshy rhizome that grows just below the surface of the soil. Repot in spring when the rhizome outgrows the pot. Because rhizomes have shallow roots, a shallow pot will do.
