From the lot of begonias I had in my garden just one variety has survived. This is one of the most common and easy to propagate.
Propagation can even be done by planting bits of leaves. This begonia has some pretty flowers and the leaves have a nice shine. One needs to keep a vigil and re-pot begonias for them to survive. They need sandy soil as retaining of water in their roots will kill them.
This year I have decided to go for more varieties which I will only get at some nursery as even my friends gardens have none of these. We normally exchange plants.
