Answer: Moving indoors from outside is a shock for a plant as the conditions are usually not as "perfect" for growing. You didn't mention if you were fertilizing. Small leaves could be a sign of lack of nutrients or lack of light. Fertilize with a balanced product, such as 10-10-10, or Miracle-Gro, which is 15-30-15. It will promote both foliage and bloom. You might also want to increase the humidity around the plant. Homes are very dry during the winter months when heating units are running. (Set it on a shallow tray of water on top of pebbles to keep the water form soaking into the pot.) Plants also need rest periods, so it's quite likely that your begonia will perk up when spring rolls around. Basal stem cuttings are best taken in spring when new growth starts.
