prune dragon wing begonia for wintering in house

Zone 76401 | Anonymous added on November 11, 2019 | Answered

The begonias are quite large and heavy-tilting and drooping. I would like to learn how to do this correctly and possibly get new plants from the cut My one angel wing hasn't done well. I don't have any photos. Many thanks. Rene Turner

These are a unique cross between an angelwing and a tuberose begonia. They will do quite well in a sunny window, needing a little more light indoors than out. These also can be pruned like an angelwing. This can be done anytime indoors. Just prune to your desired height and save any branch tips to put in water on your windowsill. These will root very easily. Just change the water out every few days.

This can be cared for like an angelwing, so this article will give you more information:
