Rex Beg. Horomone or water?

a1chemyst(7-Georgia)January 4, 2010

ok well i saw the last post about succes with rex, but i was wondering which way is faster and more effective/ efficient... i would prefer info on rex, as its the only kind of begonia i have, but any other type would help also. i have 'green light' rooting horomone (IBA 0.1)... or should i use water? for me the only concern is if it works, but it would be nice for it to root quickly. thanks

The rooting hormone you have will promote root growth AND reduce the time for roots to form

I am not a big fan of rooting in water for anything. Ken Beatie--from get growing-- once said that the roots formed in water rot off and new roots are formed. It made sense to me because it takes quite a while for water started cutting to show new growth.
