Rex Begonia Leaf Cutting Propagation

Posted by neuf 5 Indy (My Page) on

As you can see in the photo, I am getting growth in my first attempt at leaf cutting propagation. It is in a plastic take-home Chinese food container with 10 or twelve 1/4" holes drilled in the bottom for drainage, so it has been in a moist biosphere environment but the growth is starting to hit the clear plastic lid.

Time to move it? Should I do something different?

Don't really have a clue what I'm doing, so please help.

open the lid may need to increase frequency of watering. will be "best" to delay transplant till it doubles in size....

I have had the lid open to the ambient temp and humidity for a week, keep it moist and it has doubled in size. Note new growth in circled area.
