I just added a pretty cool begonia clipping (thanks Ed P) to my Matecho temp tank in hopes that the cutting would start to root up. I did, but then the pair decided to lay a small clutch of eggs on it! Normally I would just leave it in the tank but these two have had 0% success when I leave their eggs. Hope the clipping makes the next few weeks in the incubator on a petrie dish! They had to chose the one cool plant in the whole tank!!

You might be able to remove part of the leaf blade itself and put the leaf cutting back in the tank. The new growth will originate at the basse of the leaf where the petiole connects. The Begonia cutting doesn't need the full leaf to root, in fact, it looks like its already rooted. Put it back in the tank, and let themlay another clutch. Just my 2 cents from my experience as a plant propagator by profession.
