You can grow your Angel Wing Begonia both indoors and outdoors. They are resistant to extreme cold weather.
Their lovely green and red foliage is the main reason why they are grown.
Your Angel Begonia can be effortlessly propagated from cuttings in the spring seasons.
Your Angel Wing Begonias grow well in bright but indirect sunlight.
Excessive sunlight can cause the edges of the leaves to curl and turn them brown. However, insufficient sunlight can make the plant feeble and prevent flowering.
These plants are well suited for temperatures ranging from 62 -75℉. Therefore, temperatures below 50℉ can damage the foliage and the flowers of the plant.
Without frequent watering, your Angel Begonia leaf edges may turn brown. Stick your finger in the soil, and ensure that the top half-inch of soil is dry before watering thoroughly.
Although your Angel Wing Begonia prefer humid weather conditions, misting can encourage powdery mildew to develop on the leaves.
Ensure proper drainage on the pot to prevent waterlogging and root rot.
It is essential to have loose and well-draining soil rich in perlite and orchid bark with a proper compost amount. The ground should allow for quick water drainage with slight water retention.
The soil needs to be mildly acidic with pH levels of 5.5 to 6.5
You can use liquid fertilizer weekly or biweekly at half strength only to prevent leaf burn. During the summers, when Begonia is actively growing, you can switch to high-phosphorous fertilizers.
When growing your Angel Begonia for foliage, use a fertilizer high in nitrogen. Choose a fertilizer with slightly higher phosphorus content when growing your Begonia for flowers.
The plant sap can be toxic for both humans and pets if ingested.
Average household humidity is sufficient for Angel Wing Begonia. Try not to mist a begonia plant if it is indoor, as the wet leaves may encourage Leaf Spot Diseases and Powdery Mildew.
Angel Wing Begonia requires regular pruning. So try to remove the older or brown twigs as soon as they appear to inhibit the plant from becoming leggy.
Begonia spawns flowers throughout the year. But you can pinch off the dead or faded flowers to keep the plant healthy.
Yellow nimbuses on the leaves: It indicates Leaf Spot Disease- Spray a commercial Fungicide all over the plant.
Browning of leaves: Infrequent watering or excessive sunlight- Try and place your plant on some other window with a regular watering schedule.
