Didnโ€™t know this about Rex begonias. Check out โ€œthenโ€ and โ€œnowโ€ pics. My Rex begonia in January and now in August/September ๐Ÿ˜ฎ #HappyPlants #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #NewGrowth #BeforeAndAfter #BegoniaBunch #Begonia #RexBegonia
Wowowow!! Mine is dying ๐Ÿ˜ฉ
I didn't know that either. That's a big difference in color.
I learned today that increased humidity can cause the leaves to become larger. And color can change depending on sun. Itโ€™s been very humid here all summer. Some days 80 - 90% with no rain! Just foggy marine layers.
@Boymom-plantmom whah! Thatโ€™s too bad. Check out the rhizome though. If thereโ€™s any life to it you just might get it to do something. You Tube begonia rhizome propagation.
I love rex begonias. Iโ€™ve killed a couple and some almost killed but they mostly come back with baby leaves ๐Ÿ eventually. And some change colors in season like yours. #Begonia #NewGrowth
Gorgeous ๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿซถ๐Ÿ’š
Mine is dead ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜… my friend underwatered him when I was on vacation but this WAS mine
@Nightshade oh thatโ€™s too bad ๐Ÿ˜ฅ. That snake ๐Ÿ is freaking me out a bit ๐Ÿ˜ณ
@Annasea yeah I experienced the baby leaves thing too with another one. Heโ€™s got one normal leaf and then little ones appear & then donโ€™t mature. The guy at the nursery said not to fuss over it and it will probably do something. Weโ€™ll see. I love the Rex too. I have to work hard at not buying more ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿฅฐ
@MariansOasis ๐Ÿ˜‚ Iโ€™ve had her since I was three so I honestly adore snakes; Iโ€™m to the point where I treat her like a kitten. I donโ€™t understand how people donโ€™t find her face adorable and I will randomly just pet her ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜…
@Nightshade awww ๐Ÿฑ ๐Ÿ
Amazing! Begonias are so damn beautiful ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š
I love my begonias, they've also done that changing color and size. It's crazy the changes they go through.
@raaspra you have beautiful begonias! Love Starfire ๐Ÿฅฐ
@MariansOasis Thank you!! She's getting bigger, but her color is fading. Raven is getting more color. Such is begonias and their craziness. ๐Ÿ˜‚
