Propagation of Begonia luxurians
I have a couple small B. luxurians plants and I'd like to propagate them.
I was pleasantly surprised to learn that this species can be propagated using leaf cuttings (see for example http://www.bradsbegoniaworld.com/prop.htm ), so I don't have to chop off half the plant.
Leaf cuttings of course would be a bit big, but I understand I can trim these down. I also understand that the portions that are removed can themselves be used as cuttings if they have a main vein. In B. luxurians these outer pieces would correspond to the leaflets--and there are many--10+ per leaf.
So I'm curious if I can indeed use the leaflets to propagate these plants. If so, roughly how long would it take for them to root? How about the cutting that contains the petiole?
