Windy today: Tuberous Begonia Broken Stem

gyna78May 11, 2008

I just started falling in love with Tuberous Begonias. This year I started my tubers inside and they grew beautifully (no flowers yet). Thanks to wonderful Chicagoland weather, the wind picked up today and one of my plants were cracked off at the tuber. I was in tears. Trying to be the optismic begonia lover, I was wondering if I can propogate the stem that was broken (in water currently) and also save the still planted tuber....or am I doomed?

I guess I'm not ready for such beauties.

Thoughts are appreiciated...

Gina don't give up yet put your broken stalk in a pot of potting soil and cover with polyethylene bag keep out of the sun and hope for the best. And don't give up on your tuber either it may re sprout
