Begonia is a genus of perennial flowering plants in the family Begoniaceae. The genus contains 1,795 different plant species. The Begonias are native to moist subtropical and tropical climates. Some species are commonly grown indoors as ornamental houseplants in cooler climates. In cooler climates some species are cultivated outside in summertime for their bright colourful flowers, which have sepals but no petals.

Most begonias may be reseeded: If you cut part of a begonia plant it may become another plant. This cultivation may be performed by placing the cut portion in a clear glass and placing the glass in sunlight. Expect the newly cut begonia to grow roots in a few weeks.
