There are several colour forms of Begonia 'Cleopatra' in the nursery trade, ours, grown from leaf cuttings from the Cloud Forest, have a more olive-green form compared to some others on the internet. These dark, olive green leaves have contrasting bright colour veins which adds to their interest. Like most Rex Begonias, it will spread its rhizomes and fill out nicely, when they are grown in the right conditions.
Tender Loving Care Advice for Begonia:
Begonia are generally considered indoor plants and are prized for the interesting varieties of colours and shapes of their leaves. The occasionally colourful flowers of some species/ cultivars can be considered an added bonus. Begonia love high humidity therefore it is best to place them together with other tropical plants in the house. Many are happy under terrarium style conditions.
Light: Prefer bright indoor areas with indirect sunlight.
Water: Begonia love water however they can rot if over watered. To avoid this, allow the plant media to dry out slightly between waterings. It is also best to avoid watering on the leaves as they can be easily damaged.
