Angel Wing Begonia

I have had an unusually successful spring of sprouting seeds...except my Angel Wings. The seeds were pelleted, few, and very expensive. Not a single one came up, even though I researched them and planted accordingly. Not ONE! Has anyone every had success with these little buggers?

Are you sure you don't mean "Dragon Wing" begonias? And if so, yes, plenty of success.

Since from your name you carry scissors with you - I'd suggest a few discrete snips the next time you visit your nursery and grow them from cuttings :)

Hey, Hey...never thought of that! I DO carry a pair of scissors in my purse!

I used to give all my friends cuttings from my Angels wing Begonia. It is my all time favorite plant. Mine was in my kitchen and over 6 feet tall with about 9" wing leaves. It had large bunches of pink hanging flowers quite regularly. I never started one from seed though.
Good luck.
