Begonia 'Dino Black Sky' - Velvet Star Rex Begonia
Rex Begonias have a reputation for being difficult plants, but with proper care this Begonia 'Dino Black Sky' will thrive in your home. This Rex Begonia hybrid has a dark velvety leaf with silver spots that look like stars. Sometimes the leaves are dark green and other times they're almost black! The undersides of the leaves show electric red veining, so this plant is a stunner from above or below.

• Light: Medium to bright, indirect light. Direct sun will burn the leaves.
• Water: Allow soil to dry moderately between waterings. (We water when the top half of the soil feels dry, just before the plant starts to droop. If you water too often, the plant will rot.)
• Considerations: Avoid drafty locations. This Begonia loves humidity, but avoid misting. Increase humidity with a pebble tray or grouping plants together. Keep room temperatures between 65F and 75F.
