Rex Begonia "Red Tango" Well-Rooted Cuttings Red and Black
These are Grown in Montana cuttings of a Rex Begonia "Red Tango", with beautiful broad, swooping, jagged-edged leaves coming to a sassy point at the end with red stems. The leaves are a velvety black in the center, outlined in a bold area of deep ruby red to crimson, which is outlined on the leaves' edge with a fine black line. Depending on the light provided, this variety also shows a small strip of silvery green between the red and the fine black edging. The leaves have a metallic sheen to them that is rare in the plant world.
The cuttings are 4-6" well-rooted in water in florists tubes. These are fairly easy houseplants to grow, do not need much light, and always look lovely! They do grow small flowers that are fairly unremarkable, but they are shown here. The "Red Tango" is a small variety, growing only about 8-10" tall and 8-12" inches wide. My largest plant is filling out a 12" planter nicely. The Rex Begonia is a great houseplant for those who forget to water sometimes, as it is fairly "drought" tolerant for a tropical houseplant.
Once rooted in soil this is a plant difficulty Level 2 - Moderate, fairly easy care and forgiving of small to medium error.
Due to the trickiness of moving to soil from water this product is a difficulty Level 3 - Advanced, grows in most homes with no to minimal equipment and requires some knowledge.
All of our plants and flowers are grown in idyllic Livingston, Montana.
