Begonia rex-coltorum is a species found from Arunachal Pradesh to southeast China and has been introduced to Bandladesh, Cuba, and Hispaniola. Sometimes referred to as painted-leaf begonias or fancy-leaf begonias, being known for their beautiful and different variegated leaves. They frequently have large leaves (up to 6 inches long) that are brightly colored in various shades of green, red, silver, and even purple. These plants are grown almost exclusively for their foliage—their blooms tend to be small and less showy and many growers pinch off blooms to maintain breathtaking leaf displays. 

- Enjoys bright, indirect light year round.

- They like an airy, well draining potting mix. 

Let the soil surface become dry to the touch before watering but don't let the soil become overly dry or the plant will begin to wither. The soil should be watered to feel slightly, but evenly moist.

- Do best in moderate temperatures (60 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit) and moderately high humidity (around 50 percent).

Recommend repotting when their tubers outgrow their current pot, or when potting mix is more than 3 years old.
