Begonia Flowers

[fr] Saviez-vous que les bégonias faisaient des fleurs femelles et mâles sur la même plante? Je viens de le découvrir.

I realized this morning that my begonia (who has identity problems, more on that later) first produces male flowers, then female ones. I noticed a couple of days ago that the new buds on the flower branch were slightly different from the old ones.

See the change?

Above, the “old” male flowers. Below, the “new” female flowers:

Of course, inspired by Derek, I’m going to see if I can get seeds out of them, given I still have male flowers in the kitchen :-)

    En dehors des expériences scientifiques, la meilleure multiplication des bégonias, c’est le bouturage des feuilles. ça marche très bien !

  2. Bouturage des tiges, en ce qui me concerne ;-)

    Ça prend comme des mauvaises herbes! Je vais en mettre un (gros) à l’eclau à la place du malheureux yucca…
