Rex Hybrid Begonia "Paso Doble" Well-Rooted Cuttings Red, Black, Green, White Splash
These are Grown in Montana cuttings of a Rex Hybrid Begonia "Paso Doble", with fascinating broad, deeply spiralling, ruffled-edged leaves with red stems. The escargot-like leaves' color spiral starts as a velvety black in the center, outlined in a bold area of deep ruby red to crimson, which is outlined with white that looks like it was splashed on, with a medium to deep forest green rounding out the edges. This is a very fun and festive looking plant! The edges of the ruffled leaves are slightly fuzzy, making this a good houseplant for sensory work.
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, and are not shown here. The "Paso Doble" is a small variety, growing only about 8-10" tall and 8-12" inches wide. The Rex Begonia is a great houseplant for those who forget to water sometimes, as it is fairly "drought" tolerant for a tropical houseplant. The "Paso Doble" variety does need some humidity to thrive, and I use a humidifier on medium speed in the relatively dry Montana air. The Rex Hybrids are not as drought tolerant as the regular Rex Begonias.
