Begonia ‘China Curl’ (Begonia rex hybrid)
Bursting with texture, color and form, this standard Rex gives new meaning to the word "spiraled." A center band of silver follows the deeply twisting curls, while chocolate-brown defines its edges and radiates from the center. To bring the beholder into awe, a deep pink emanates into the silver banding giving the gardener many possibilities for the windowsill, sunroom or summer potted garden.

Sun Requirement Partial Sun
Grows to 14"
Minimum Temperature Indoors 60
Plant Type Good for a Hanging Basket


Tips for Success:

• Place in good light; some direct sunlight is needed.
• Accurate watering – Bring plant to a slight wilt between
  waterings.

• Moderate fertilizer once a month. Stop fertilizer in the winter.
• Keep humidity above 50% and night temperatures above
  60-65ºF.

• Growth cycle slows and stops for 2-3 months in the winter.
  Plants can lose some leaves during this resting period.
  This is normal. Continue normal watering.

• Use terra cotta or clay pots.
• Keep an eye out for mildew to which Rexes have some
  susceptibility.


Treating Mildew

• Identify - Appears as a white powder on the surface of the
  leaves, usually at the change of seasons.
• Treatment - Apply a baking soda solution -1Tbl/quart with a
  dribble of dishwashing detergent.
• Application - Spray at first signs and reapply every other day for
  4-5 applications.
• Prevention - Spray once every 3 months. Pure Neem Oil is
  effective on mildew.
