Begonia Beefsteak Propagation: 2 Year Progress Update!

Remember back in April 2020 when I made the video about propagating Begonia erythrophylla ‘Beefsteak’ by water rooting and leaf cuttings?

No? Here’s the video. Yes… here is the update! This WHOLE plant began with 2 stem cuttings from my friend Kathy, sent via plant mail! I am smitten with this Begonia – it has been a joy to raise! There are a couple of other Begonia types shown as well 😉
