Beefsteak Begonia - Propagate Stem Cuttings
This is such a gorgeous plant. The leaves look like lily pads and the flowers are a soft pink.

Each section of root that I plant has a leaf attached and the cutting is tucked just below the soil level.
As you can see, one of them already has a new dark-red-green leaf and a tiny pink flower bud.
Beefsteak Begonias like to be on the dry side even when you are propagating the roots to make new plants.
