dear friend gave me cutting from her humongous begonia, before she passed. it was doing well when I moved from NC to WV, continued well, moved to FL; stayed on lanai out of direct sun, thrived, had to trim constantly, giving pieces to friends, and starting new plants! now I have moved back to coastal carolina, it has been in the house in a sunny room, but something is killing it from inside…the stalks are brown and wholy inside, leaves are dying also.
is there anything to do to save this plant? its all I have from my very dear friend and it breaks my heart I dont know what to do to save this plant! it was so beautiful and doing so well. did I start to kill it by taking so many cuttings and triming?
please hurry, dont know how much longer it will last! I’ve watered, fertilized, sprayed, removed dead etc. nothing……..
