    I have two indoor fibrous begonia’s, one has green leaves and the other has dark red leaves.  I keep them at a sunny window and I’ve had them for almost a year.  The dark red leaf begonia has always stayed small and compact, but the green one is growing like crazy and branching out everywhere.  Should I prune the green leaf one?  If so, how?

    The only begonias I have pruned are the wax begonias that I pinch back when they get leggy & start new ones,  I’ve never grown a Rex before.    Is there a way to divide it up?

    I found this.  Sounds like maybe it needs to be re-potted
