To add more flora variety to your coming Chinese New Year decorations, our growers from Cameron Highlands just sent us some of the most exciting pot plants we’ve seen this year.
One of them is this snail-shell-looking ‘Begonia Rex Escargot’ or more commonly called simply as ‘Escargot’.
Botanical Name: Begonia ‘Escargot’ bah-GO-nyah
‘Escargot’ is an extremely popular Rex hybrid begonia that is quickly becoming a household name. Its moniker reflects the snail-shaped curl located where the base of the leaf meets the leaf stem. The intriguing foliage can stand on its own but also mingles beautifully with other foliage plants and brightly colored blooms.
Care: Provide organic, sharp-draining soil in shade with lots of humidity. Water when soil is dry to the touch. Avoid soggy conditions, but do not allow plants to wilt. Do not over-fertilize. Remove dead leaves promptly and keep the soil surface free of debris to avoid disease problems.
