Hi Shauna,

Your plant is an Angel Wing Begonia.

Stem cuttings is the easiest way to propagate your Angel Wing Begonia Plant.

Cut a 3”-5” section from the tip of a non-flowering stem and remove the leaves from the bottom 1/2-2/3rds of the stem. The cutting should have two to four nodes on it.

Dip the cut ends of these stems into a small amount of Rooting Hormone Fill a 4″ deep pot that has drip holes in the bottom with perlite, coarse sand, or a commercial germinating medium. Moisten the soil.

Make a 2″ deep hole in the soil using a pencil. Plant the cutting in the hole & firm up the soil around it.

If using more than one cutting, space the holes about 2″ apart

Place three or four 6-8″ sticks around the side of the pot. Cover the container with clear plastic wrap that rests on the tops on the sticks. This creates a support for the plastic bag and keeps the plastic off the leaves.

Put the pot into bright indirect light. Keep the soil moist but not soggy.
