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.
