Each one is more beautiful than the last! I am not even going to try Begonias, I know it is just too hot and dry here in SoCal.

@pooh4jvn try one and grow it in the shade. They like it warm. Then you’ll know if you can

@docthrill. But do they like it hot? We can be in the high 90s to 100+ most of the summer.

Maybe I will give one plant a try. I don’t remember if I have seen them at Lowe’s or Home Depot, maybe they are inside with shade/house plants?

I know it’s a Rex, but the label didn’t list the cultivar name as usual. I’ll find it later

Don’t know the cultivar name of this begonia due to it’s different colors of leaves it’s produced. It’s still pretty small and probably won’t be able to tell what it is till it gets much bigger. There, I posted all of them I think for the first time

This is how I propagate my begonias. Poke a hole in the soil, roll the leaf in a tube or funnel, wet the point, dip in rooting powder, put in the hole. I then dome it and rest it in a tray of some water until new leaves form. At that point I’ll pot it in a slightly bigger pot
