Begonia cuttings – March update

Well, they’ve certainly grown!

This was my progress update from last August:



…and here they are now, potted up separately:



To be honest, I haven’t a clue what I ought to do with them at this point. From what I read online last year I reckoned they were supposed to go dormant for a few months over winter, but since they showed no inclination to do so, I just left them as they were, watering them very sparingly and picking off the odd dead leaf as necessary.

So who knows? Maybe they’ll grow on properly and thrive, maybe they won’t – I suppose only time will tell! Potting on the larger of the two today revealed a very healthy-looking fibrous root system, so hopefully there’s a nice little tuber bulking up down in the middle of the compost. Fingers crossed…
