I took a broken leaf from my Auntie’s Begonia. It’s from a tuberous-type Begonia with double white and red flowers. I’m hoping that I can grow a baby plant from this leaf.
As I was searching Flickr and YouTube for information on how to propagate a Begonia from a leaf cutting, I discovered that some (or maybe all) Wax and Tuberous Begonias are edible. Now I have to try the one’s we have.
Below is a YouTube video from EatTheWeeds that explains how to eat them.
I had a craving for Sinigang (a Filipino dish) and one of the ingredients I purchased to cook it was Kangkong (aka Ong Choy, Water Spinach, etc.). I just used the tips and leaves and saved the bottom stems. I then cut the bottom about .5 inch from a node so the stem can easily soak up water. I’m planning on trying to plant this if it roots.
The next day, I was really surprised to see some of the stems already rooting, just one day after I placed them in water.
