I need help from someone who knows about plants!!?

My daughter brought home a baby plant a couple years ago from a VBS that she went to. They just sent the plant with no info or name of the plant but I’ve somehow managed to keep it alive lol. I don’t know what it is or how to properly care for it. It’s grown quite far over the edge of the pot I put it in and I think it needs a bigger one but I want to do it the right way so I don’t kill it.

    Begonia I have them in the U.K. the cold can kill them off and overwatering.

    I would repot it in the Autumn when it stops flowering.

    You can also take trimmings from the plant and root them in water.  Transplant the cuttings to the garden or outdoor pots and enjoy them during the warm months.  The links provided by other respondents may have more specific instructions on the cutting and rooting process.  One thing I will say.  When you repot, it's important to use clean sanitized potting medium.  Don't use soil dug up from your back yard.

    It's a begonia.  They're one of those plants that are really easy to care for until they suddenly decide to commit suicide one day!  Whatever you've been doing it really likes it.  It looks very happy.  Here's a guide:

    It's a wax begonia--very easy to care for.  You can repot it in a larger container.  You can also plant it outside.
