Q.

Winter Is Upon Us, Now What With This Cuttings?

Zone 11232 zone 7? | T009 added on December 17, 2019 | Answered

Late Sept of this year I made a cutting of a Begonia leaf. About a month or so later, I noticed new growth. Its about an 1 inch high and I keep it under Florescent lights most of the day. I believe the leaf was from my Summer purchase of a Reiger Begonia. Living here in the NYC area and Winter approaching, how do i handle this cutting? It seems to stay erect as I daily spray it from drying out, and yet it does not seem to get any larger either. With Full months of 'bad' weather, what should or could i do for this cutting? Would it last until Spring? Should i attempt to pot it?

You can pot it up very gently. You will need to keep it inside over the winter. Here are instructions for taking care of begonias:
