I'm guessing your angel plant is an angel wing begonia. If so, these plants require moderate to bright light and need lots of humidity to maintain good health. Water when the top of the soil feels dry and apply enough water to thoroughly moisten the soil. Don't water again until the top of the soil begins to dry out. They don't like wet feet! To increase humidity you might try setting the pot on a layer of gravel in a tray, in which you keep a little water. As the water evaporates it will increase humidity around the plant. Hope this information helps!
