Begonia 'Black Mamba', which belongs in the Rex Begonia, Painted-Leaf Begonia, or Fancy-Leafy Begonia collection of cultivated Begonia hybrids, is a stunning plant to add to your collection. With their velvety black leaves, which grow in a spiral, contrasting red undersides, and cream stems, this compact Begonia exceeds all expectations.

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.

As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

Pro tips

Do not mist the leaves, as this can lead to powdery mildew. Tap water often causes the edges of the leaves to burn, so use distilled or rain water instead! If you don't have access to this, leave some tap water to sit out for a few days so that the harmful chemicals can evaporate out. They also have very thin roots, so be careful not to let the plants sit in water as this will cause their roots to rot.

Care Guide

How to take care of Rex Begonia Dark Mambo

They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, as it is too intense for them. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is fine and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.

They will do well in medium light, but will grow faster with brighter light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

They need to be watered when the top half of the soil is dry to the touch. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It may vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you water again.

They like a high humidity environment but do not like being misted, as this can cause powdery mildew. Instead, you can place them on a pebble tray or put them around a humidifier. Although they won't die if they don't receive enough humidity, their leaves may have some dry, crunchy, or yellow edges.

This plant is moderately toxic and can cause some adverse reactions when ingested so it is best to not let your pets eat it, which we advise for all plants in general. The severity of the reaction will depend on how much of the plant is ingested but, if you know your pet typically does not eat your plants, this plant will be suitable for your home.
