The Q&A Archives: Begonia Cuttings

Question: This fall, before frost I brought in my begonias. I lost one but the other keeps going. The healthy one has new blooms, and a lot of spikey stems that look like their going to produce blooms. Can I cut these an propagate a new plant, or should I throwthem away?

Answer: Begonias are very easy to root. Simply take those cuttings, remove all but the top 4 or 5 leaves, and place them in a jar of water until you see roots starting to form. I have a jarful on my desk right now!
