Angel Wing Begonia - Begonia coccinea (cane begonia) This little darling is one of the easiest houseplants to grow. It can provide a dwarf plant for the desk, or a large bushy, shrub-like floor plant, reaching 1.5 metres. Speckled or streaked foliage appears on glossy green leaves with red tints or backing. Dainty pink, red orange or white flower clusters appear if cared for well. It is also one of the easiest plants to take cuttings from - plopping a freshly cut cane in water will ensure a new plant in a matter of days. Your friends will love you for it! Plant care doesn’t have to be a mystery….most plants come from sub-tropical places, so ensuring your plant never dries out is very important. Watering every 4-5 days is optimal (but does depend on the temperature of it’s environment – over watering makes for sad plants too!) and fertilise with liquid fertiliser every 2-3 months. If you really love your plant (and want it to love you back) mist its leaves every few days too. ooooo……and maybe a little opera!
