Let's see your propagated Begonias, or Begs you want to propagate.

This cutting was put in the ground about 2 months ago. Now it's blooming and there's a new stem coming up from the roots (or on the stem below the soil.)

These were propagated last summer, potted together for winter, and put back in ground about 2 mos ago. (And some cuttings have been taken since then.)

I have pretty good luck with my cane begonias, too. I have the mother plant and one of her babies just about the same size. I have given away pots and pots full. I just can't seem to just toss away the cuttings! Someone on ATP here, sorry I can't remember her name, gave me a beauty of a cutting. I call it Peter Maravel after her uncle who gave it to her in the 70's. It is doing marvelously and needs pruning already. Obviously these plants just keep on giving .

I just looked through my Treemail. I got the beautiful cane begonia from @LinneaJ way up there in Maine. Thank You! You can see it is doing well . You can't see the blooms. I turned the plant to even it out and the flowers on on the other side. They are a very stunning dark pink.

This is the same stem from the first pic I put here. I guess it's really happy!

A little gift from a friend's dragon wing, stuck in ground around 6 weeks ago.
Thumb of 2016-06-29/purpleinopp/6945f2

These were propagated last summer, in a pot over winter, now back in ground for summer. I love how happy they look!

More 'Castaway' cuttings so happy & blooming.

Lovey dubby Lovely Begonias!

I sure wish I knew the secret to keeping Begonia's happy anymore! I had great luck with growing them years ago but for the past 5 or 6 years they do okay for a short while and then just seem to up and die.

TY! IDK why Begonias wouldn't be happy there. A decent number of them are probably hardy where you are, but so are all kinds of interesting plants with all kinds of beautiful, wild leaves. The ones I have aren't that interesting, as far as Begonias go, but I love them. They give me something to do. ;)

*Blush* It's not them ... really! They'd probably be perfectly happy if I took proper care of them. Green Grin!

This 'Beefsteak' leaf took root in water. Took about 3-4 weeks.


I stuck this Begonia stem in this pot last summer. Starting to bloom!
Thumb of 2016-07-02/purpleinopp/371232

These stems of 'Castaway' were put here about 3 months ago.
Thumb of 2016-07-02/purpleinopp/dd2c78

These stems were stuck last fall. I've taken cuttings from them a couple times so far this season to get more going. The 'Sinbad' is not as happy-go-lucky as the others I have. Having a few more individuals would make me less nervous. A couple died over winter.

Oh, wow all. So nice to see your starts take off so easily! ! !

OK, not really. I am really really jealous. lol. nodding nodding nodding

I have Carollina De Lucerna, Tiffany. Well, let me rephrase, I am slowly killing three stalks of Lucerna, in water. I love the fact you can stick them right in the dirt, and they grow. I on the other hand, am straining the cornea of my eyes, starring into the vase for any sign of life, every time I walk by the dang things. NOPE.... nuthin.

Nice pics guys. Enjoyed reading your successes.

Some blooms are starting on a couple of these shown above, 'Sinbad' and 'Castaway.'

This stem was put here around 6 weeks ago.


The blooming one here has been there since last year, more added last weekend.

Most of the Begonias here were added last weekend & the weekend before.

Little stems I stuck exuberantly in the ground throughout this past summer did very little because of the extremely dry conditions. These have all taken root well and will spend the winter in this pot.
