Summer 2018 saw my front porch filled with flowers along with the yard and my favorite were the Angel Begonias.
I want to make sure I have more of these come spring so I’ve plucked stems from the plant which I’m storing upstairs in our guest room.
I bring all of my house plants in the house in mid-September and take them back outdoors in early June. To start the plants I pinch stems close to the center of the plant and any that are growing really fast and getting leggy. I’ve done this to my Prayer Plant and Goosefoot Fern.
I don’t add anything to the stems to get them to start and usually in 10-14 days new roots are showing at each notch of the stem. In the spring I’ll plant all of the stems of each plant in large individual pots. The pots will have a good quality potting soil and two tablespoons of epsom salt and they take off. By August the Angel-winged begonia will be full of bloom if not before and the prayer plant will have delicate white blooms. I love growing plants.
