Re: Hello again

Narda, I am beginning to think that I dreamed the process as I have checked 
every book that we have on propagation and cannot find the material.  It is 
really simple.  I took shears and cut between the veins of the begonia 
leaves.  Each leaf will give you 6 to 8 cuttings.  The cuttings are then 
placed into little cells in ( I used pro mix and perlite about one-fourth 
perlite) Put the pointed end or the one that joins the center vein into the 
wet soil.  Cover with a plastic dome.  A few weeks later little plantlets 
begin to appear.  Roots also tend to go in all directions.  I am now moving 
them into four inch pots.

Actually the young plants can be bought for very little but it is sometimes 
difficult to find the color I want so I only took cuttings from the special 
colors that grow well.
Good luck
