There's Life In There

I like to take cuttings from my angel wing begonia houseplant and start new plants during the summer.  They start really well on our front porch.  This year, I put cuttings out there right before a busy weekend.  We left town on a very hot Sunday returning late that night.  I went to work that Monday (another hot, dry day) and when I returned home, the angel wing begonia cuttings looked dead.  I quickly poured water on them and hoped for the best.

This weekend, I spotted a new leaf forming.

All is well.

  1. A very determined plant! I had a funny experience about begonia. My husband bought me a begonia plant from garage sale. After a while it looks bad but suddenly sprouted a new plant from that same pot and grow so fast. don't know how the scentad geranium came to live beside the begonia.
