Are you thinking of propagating the Angel Wing Begonia? Creating more healthy plants from the mother plant is crucial and fun. This plant can be propagated through cuttings and water rooting. This article will show you how to do that, step-by-step.

Method #1: Propagation Through Cuttings

To propagate Angel Wing Begonia through cuttings, follow these steps:

  1. Take a cutting 4-6 inches long from the tip of the plant using clean and sharp garden shears.
  2. Remove the lower leaves from the cutting, leaving only a few leaves at the top. A good tip: Dip the cut part of the stem in the rooting hormone.
  3. Plant the cutting in a pot full of moist potting soil. You may also plant it beside the mother plant to make it look fuller.
  4. You can wrap a clear plastic bag around the pot, creating a mini greenhouse.
  5. Let the potted plant sit under bright but indirect light.
  6. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged.
  7. After 4-6 weeks, the cutting should have rooted and can be transplanted to its pot.

  • Take cuttings around 4 inches long.
  • Cut off the stem just below the node.
  • Use clean garden scissors to remove the lower leave, leaving only a couple at the top of the cutting.
  • Place the cutting in freshwater, with the cut’s end down.
  • You may expect roots to develop after a month or less.
  • Wait until the roots grow up to a couple of inches long before planting on a pot.
