Angelwing Begonia is a truly stunning plant that is native to the tropical rainforest. Torch has dark bronze leaves and orange blooms. Showy leaves and blooms that hang in clusters like grapes make these Begonias one of the most wonderful plants for horticulture.They perform well in both shade and bright light locations. We also offer these Angelwing Begonia as URC (unrooted cuttings).
Your unrooted cuttings will arrive freshly cut. You will need to plant them immediately
and begin a misting cycle to root the cuttings. This will leech the soil of nutrients, so during the propagation phase use a constant feed of 1/3 the normal recommended dosage
of fertilizer until well rooted.
Angelwing Begonia is a great landscape plant. For best results, plant 1 plug per 4in pot and pinch at 3 weeks. Put 3 plugs per 10in basket and pinch at 5-6 weeks. Plant these Begonia liners in well-drained soil, and try to keep the pH of the soil between 5.5 and 6.5. Use low feed until spring then medium feed as days lengthen. As the days get longer the Begonias will finish more rapidly.
Cuttings vary in size between different plant families, but most can be described as tip cuttings (ivy are leaf-and-eye stem cuttings not tips) that stick nicely
in small plug trays such as the 105-plug tray we use (some varieties are better suited for a 50 cell tray, i.e. Angelwing Begonia, Bougainvillea, Setcrecea, etc.). Please do not order unrooted cuttings unless you are an experienced propagator with mist systems and proper temperature control.
