Begonia propagation like this??

gardeningwithlcgrace(7 Delaware)February 22, 2006

My supermarket begonia siting has prompted an all out search...I found this website. Has anyone tried this? These are Rieger Begonias and I just have to have one in every color! I'd like to try to propagate ASAP just in case I kill it after a week. This way, I'll increase my chances of enjoying them...(I know that sounds terrible, but begonias are a new thing for me! lol) Also, the more - the merrier!

So, an herbaceous cutting...???

What do you think? Thanks for your thoughts!

Stem cutting works for Rieger begonias. The page you reference should do it.

Good luck
