These striking begonias are grown not for their flowers, but for their striking leaves. There are many varieties and you will receive TWO leaf cuttings propagated from one of the escargot varieties I have in stock similar to those in the first and second frame. You will also receive one leaf cutting potted in a newsprint pot similar to that in frame 3 which will require 2-4 months of being in a mini-hothouse situation (in this case, a zip-lock baggy).

Preferring shaded, humid conditions and rich, aerated soil, they can be grown indoors or out. Plants can grow for up to two to three years, but may last indefinitely if grown from leaf cuttings. Along with the leaf cuttings, you will receive detailed instructions and helpful hints to get you started on a Tropical Garden.

Each starter kit includes TWO ROOTED LEAF CUTTINGS and ONE un-rooted cutting from one of my larger plants. Each rooted leaf cutting has been started in an anti-bacterial growing medium and is ready to pot. The un-rooted cutting is potted in a recycled newspaper cup and includes its mini-hothouse (zip-lock baggy).


Shipped via USPS Priority mail, you should receive your cuttings within 2-3 days.
