We offer assortment flats for those who like a little variety in their life. You will receive 35 plants each of three varieties (growers choice). These are great for growers who are just getting started.
Your unrooted cuttings will arrive freshly cut. You will need to plant them immediately
and begin a misting cycle to root the cuttings. This will leech the soil of nutrients, so during the propagation phase use a constant feed of 1/3 the normal recommended dosage
of fertilizer until well rooted.
Double Begonias takes about 4 weeks to root at 70 degree night temperatures depending on your conditions. Grow at 55-60 degree night temperature. Low feed medium light. May need occasional pinching if grown for an extended time.
Cuttings vary in size between different plant families, but most can be described as tip cuttings (ivy are leaf-and-eye stem cuttings not tips) that stick nicely
in small plug trays such as the 105-plug tray we use (some varieties are better suited for a 50 cell tray, i.e. Angelwing Begonia, Bougainvillea, Setcrecea, etc.). Please do not order unrooted cuttings unless you are an experienced propagator with mist systems and proper temperature control.
