You can grow Angel Wing Begonia indoors and it will flower for you if given adequate light. It does best in temperatures of 50-75?F, bright indirect sunlight coming from the South/East/West, and ample humidity. Place pebbles or gravel in the drainage dish to hold water and increase the humidity around the plant but make sure the pot is sitting on the gravel and not in the water. Mist occasionally with warm water to further increase humidity. Keep the soil evenly moist and use warm water, but do not let the plant stand in water. Feed every 2-3 weeks with a half strength dilution of water soluable houseplant fertilizer. Best wishes with your begonia!
