I was assured by an experienced almost exclusively begonia gardener that she halves the bigger tubers every year. I can't speak to her every week as we sort of pass working hours 'out of synch' so I can't get the info I'm after....Thanks for your response...

Ask Marksbegonias - I am sure he must have done it!
