About Angel Wing Begonia
Though the common name Angel’s Wing Begonia is used for many Begonia species, Begonia coccinea is a gorgeous flowering species whose leaves look ready to take flight. The underside of the leaves are a deep red color so folks often choose to display them up somewhere they can admire the coloration on both sides of the leaves! These plants produce beautiful blooms year round which can be left on the plant or clipped and displayed in floral arrangements. 👼

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.

To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Angel Wing Begonia after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
Ive had my angel wing for about a month now i believe and it’s already pushing on 5 new leaves! It’s a wonderful plant that has beautiful foliage. They can sometimes get a bad rep for being “hard to take care of”. however, mine is pretty easy-going and has had no troubles as of yet :)
