The Q&A Archives: Angel Wing Begonia

Question: I have an Angel Wing Begonia, potted, filtered sun in kitchen, and it doesn't bloom. Foliage is very healthy. Food? Fertilizer? Any ideas appreciated.

Answer: Angel Wing Begonias enjoy average household warmth, bright light, and moist soil from spring through autumn (water sparingly during winter). Moist air is necessary, so place the pot on a tray filled with pebbles and keep about a half-inch of water in the tray. Mist around the plants daily, but don't spray water on the leaves. As soon as the dry air is eliminated, your plant should bloom. You can fertilize during active growth (spring-autumn) with a diluted liquid houseplant food.

Hope your plant blooms prolifically by spring!
