Angel Wing begonia (Corallina de lucerna) is primarily grown for its elegant foliage. Unlike many begonias, this particular variety needs plenty of bright but indirect light to thrive. The key to getting this plant to bloom and thrive is providing the proper care and environment. The Angel Wing begonia is so named because of its graceful angel-like foliage. This plant grows like a cane, 2 to 3 feet in height. It requires some sun to partial shade, blooms all year round, and attracts bees and butterflies. Angel wings require slightly acidic soil and can be propagated by cuttings.
In the winter time this plant likes temperatures between 70 to 72 degrees. During the winter this plant will tend to go dormant if left in low lighting conditions therefore to keep it thriving supplement the light if you live in an area where lighting is poor during the winter.
