Now I recently did a post on propagating begonias from vein cuttings, but I didn't mention that I also started one the more common way. I figured it would be interesting to see how the two progressed. Both are from the same plant and were started at the same time. Although the plants from vein cuttings start out much smaller, you get more of them and they seem to grow faster. There are at least seven separate little begonia plants in the photo below. Even more are developing at the farther edges of the leaf.
