Pro Tips

If the plant looks tall and spindly, it may not be getting enough light. This plant is also sensitive to root rot, so avoid overwatering by making sure the top 1/4 of the soil is dry before watering. As a tropical plant, though, it will become crispy and lose leaves if the soil becomes too dry. Given the right water and enough light, Angel Wing Begonias can be expected to grow rapidly, and even flower, in the spring and summer.

Origin

Begonia is a genus of 1,300 species found in tropics and subtropics around the world. The Angel Wing Begonia grows in dappled sunlight at the understory of forests. Begonias were first documented by Franciscan monk Charles Plumier in the 1600s who named this beautiful plant after his favorite botanist Michel Begon who was the governor of Haiti.
