This plant is not a Rex Begonia but it is commonly known as the Climbing Rex Begonia Vine although it is part of the grapevine family (Vitaceae). It's leaves are gorgeously coloured and resemble those of a Begonia Rex with distinct white/silver markings on a velvety green leaf with a purple/pink midrib, the underside of the leaves and the stem of the vine is a rich purple/magenta. This vine is fast growing in the warmer months and an excellent climber as its tendrils will twist around anything they can get a hold of!

We are now adding in 'Transport risk' in the product description as some plants are more delicate than others and/or find transport stressful. We will rate in terms of Low, Medium or High risk and discuss specifically to the plant in question. If this information is not provided yet please feel free to reach out via email to ask. Please also note that if plants are sent with new leaves that haven't had the chance to harden off they are susceptible to physical damage in transit as the slightest touch can cause it. 

Please note that we use 'Bugs for Bugs' regularly as a preventative control measure for pests. These predatory bugs are administered in vermiculite. This vermiculite is sprinkles onto the leaves and sometimes remains. 

We know that sometimes it's hard to get an idea of the size of the plant your are purchasing. Photos can make plants look bigger than they actually are. That's why we've made it easy. In each listing you will notice a photo with a background with lines drawn. These lines are distanced 5cm away from each other and the photographs are taken straight on with products against the wall. These photos will be the best indicator of size.
