  •   Silver Swirl Rex Begonia, scientifically known as Begonia rex 'Silver Swirl,' is a stunning and popular houseplant cherished for its striking foliage. Silver Swirl Rex Begonia is a cultivated hybrid of Rex Begonias that has been selectively bred for its stunning and unique leaf patterns and colors.

    Silver Swirl Rex Begonia stands out primarily because of its extraordinary leaves. The leaves are large, asymmetrical, and have intricate patterns of silver, green, and purple. The silver markings create a swirl-like effect on the leaves, giving the plant its name.

     Silver Swirl Rex Begonia, like many other Rex Begonias, is primarily grown for its stunning foliage rather than its flowers. However, when it does bloom, it produces small and inconspicuous flowers that are typically not the main attraction of the plant.

    Silver Swirl Rex Begonia is generally considered a low-maintenance houseplant, making it suitable for both beginners and people with a busy lifestyle.

  • Provide bright, indirect light for your Silver Swirl Rex Begonia. It thrives in medium to bright, filtered sunlight. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

    Keep the soil consistently moist but not soggy. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry. Ensure that the pot has proper drainage to prevent overwatering.

    Use a well-draining potting mix that retains some moisture but doesn't become waterlogged. A mix of tropical plants or African violets can work well.

    Feed your Silver Swirl Rex Begonia with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half-strength during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid fertilizing in the dormant winter months.

    Rex Begonias are considered non-toxic to humans. However, they may still pose a mild risk to pets if ingested, as begonias contain oxalates that can irritate the mouth and digestive tract. It's best to keep Rex Begonias out of reach of curious pets to prevent any potential issues.

    Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging:

    *** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.
