Your plant is an Angel Wing Begonia.

Stem CuttingsLearn how to propagate plants using stem cuttings, leaf cuttings, cane cuttings, and branch 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.

These plants are considered poisonousPlants are a great addition to homes and offices, but it’s important to know whether your plants are dangerous to children, pets, or even adults. Some plants contain chemicals such as oxalates, solanine, glycosides, or alkaloid lycorine that may cause vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, swelling and redness of the mouth, throat, and lips, and trouble breathing. Touching parts of certain plants, especially the sap, may cause various skin irritations. The weight and age of the human or pet involved, and the part and amount of plant eaten determine how severe the reaction to the toxins will be. Although plants may be listed as non-toxic, they can still cause individual allergic reactions.
