                                                     Cuttings I received from my pal, Walter Dworkin.
This is how you set up cuttings after receiving them in the mail. Photo was taken just after they were set in the propagation trays, in September. They are already rooted and potted in 3" pots for growing on.
'Debbie Davenport' - a nice, tall cane hybrid of mine. It grows both tall, and bushy, and just keeps on growing. My current stock plant is as tall as me...5 feet 8 inches.....although I will be pruning ti back shortly.

Thanks to my pal Walter Dworkin for rescuing this hybrid of mine. This is 'Ice Storm', created back around 2000. I lost it in the hurricanes of 2004 but now have it back.
This is B. Debbie Davenport', a hybrid cane of mine, It grows tall, upright, and never stops blooming. One of those angelwings that just will not quit!

Leaf Cuttings FYI

 This is how begonia leaf cuttings are done. While I prefer the whole leaf method, cutting off excess leaf around the outer edges, wedges work in more controlled environments. The cuttings to the left are in pure perlite - the method of choice in hot, humid summers. Add vermiculite under lights or in winter.

Begonia 'River Nile' - a beautiful Brad Thompson rhizomatous hybrid. It grows to a medium size, has waxy, attractive leaves and is easy to grow. On the High Recommended List!
