These are so fun! Water propagation works great for these. Snip off a stem with a few leaves, snip off the bottom couple leaves, stick that part in water, and wait for roots (which will come fast). β˜€οΈ
I’ve had great luck with water propagation with my polka dot begonia!
@debbiedo I’m propagating my Silver Jewel Rex Begonia this way and the roots are growing like crazy! I’m amazed at how fast they’re growing! They grow even faster if you but the cutting with water under a grow light 😊
