What you will receive:
You will receive a cutting from an angel wing begonia variety, ‘Sophia.’ You may also choose or add eight or more 3" deep pots for rooting and early-stage growing of your cuttings.
Angel wing begonia also known as hybrid cane begonia consists of a large and diverse begonia group with foliage of special beauty and flowers of various colors. The plant is so named for its wing-like shaped leaves growing on cane-like, upright, and red stems.
Angel Wing Begonia variety ‘Sophia’ is a short name of its formal name ‘Sophie Cecile.’ Compared with other angel wing begonias, the lobed leaves of Sophia begonia are very large and in a dark green color splashed in silvery white. The undersides of the leaves are marron. Sophia is a medium sized plant and may reach three feet high. Sophia’s flowers are in a rose-pink color with fragrance and are often seen in spring and summer
This listing also includes an option of 3” deep pots which can be used for rooting and for growing early-stage young plants without taking much space.
You may root your cutting in water or directly in potting mix. If the latter method is used, make sure that the soil is kept evenly moist, but not too soggy. Rooting may take two to three weeks.
Soil: Angel-wing begonias thrive in a humus-rich, well-drained potting mix.
Light: Bright indirect. Bright light enhances the leaf colorations and promotes flower development. When grown outside, the plant should be partially shaded. Avoid direct sunlight, especially during hot summers.
Water: Keep the soil consistently moist. Water the plant thoroughly when the soil surface has become dried.
Temperature: The best indoor temperatures range is 65°F to 75°F. The plant should not be left under 60°F.
Feed: Feed the plant once a month during the growing season with a dilute of 20-20-20 mix. Feed more frequent when the plant is in excessively growth and less frequently in winter.
Special care: When the new plant is about 6 inches tall, pinch the top and other over growing shoots to promote lateral shoots to develop and to make the plant bushier.
Plants are shipped with pots. We offer different shipping methods at checkout.
MOVING YOUR PACKAGE ALONG:
If you notice your package is stuck somewhere during transit, filing an update request on your tracking page may help move your package along. You may also notice us to add such a request from our side.
We take very effective packaging measures to prevent your plants from damages. When the temperature is below freezing point at any transit points, it is important to add one or more heat packs in your order (depending on your package size) to protect your plant from cold damage. Check out our Shipping Supplies collection for a variety of products related to shipping.
It is also critical to take your package inside promptly upon delivery when it is hot or cold. Heat may accumulate and damage your plants if the package is left under the sun even if the temperature is relatively mild.
