Silvia, a Begonia Rex Magic Colour Silver Queen, is one of the most beautiful plants you can get for your home. She comes in more colours, sizes, and shapes than you can imagine, with over 1,000 species to choose from!
One thing to note is Silvia can be a bit picky about light and water, so you better be ready for a new plant project! Don’t let that put you off though, because ‘Rex’ means ‘king’ in Latin, which is the perfect name for Silvia with the biggest, most extravagant leaves!
Silvia, Begonia Magic Colour Silver Queen - Mini
Silvia prefers bright indirect light to partial shade, without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight however would be welcomed.
If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:
- Minimal shadow = lower light
- Half shadow = indirect light
- Full shadow = direct sun
