Begonia Painted Leaf Rex is primarily a foliage plant, careful cultivation is important to realize its full beauty. Moreover, use a porous potting mix in a relatively shallow pot, and feed the plant regularly. Keep the plant moist, but avoid overwatering. Be especially careful of directly spraying the leaves, as standing water will encourage powdery mildew, which is a disaster on a plant that is cultivated for its beautiful foliage. However, it can be challenging to find just the right conditions for Begonia to display its best leaf color. Additionally, use liquid fertilizer weekly at quarter strength or at half strength every two weeks. However, Rex begonias can also be propagated by pinning a leaf to the bedding mix and making small incisions in the leaf veins or by inserting a leaf (with a petiole) directly into the soil.
