Feeding:Angel Wing Begonia should be fed once a month with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer. Be sure to follow the instructions on the fertilizer label to avoid overfeeding. Pests: Angel Wing Begonia is susceptible to common houseplant pests such as spider mites, mealybugs, and scale insects. Regularly inspecting the plant and treating any pests as soon as you notice them will help keep them at bay. Deficiencies: If the leaves of your Angel Wing Begonia turn yellow, it may be a sign of over-watering, under-watering, or a nutrient deficiency. Inspect the plant and adjust its care as needed.
