It looks like a rhizomatous Begonia.

Should I get rid of the green leafy begonia so the night owl begonia can flourish or no? I'm not sure how to properly replant them without killing them. If both plants can flourish then I don't want to replant but I definitely don't want the night owl begonia to die at all costs.

I think I was confused, sorry. The green plant isn't a Begonia. Are you able to add another pic of it without glare in the background?

The green thing in the red circle seems to have hairy stem and leaves with purplish tinged stem. Perhaps a Solanum like a Solanum nigrum?.

I got these 2 photos, hope theyre better. Is the white fuzz on the stems supposed to be there or is it powdery mildew?

Hi, that green fuzzy stem looks natural to the plant, and I agree the green one is not a begonia.
Plant it and they will come.

Is the redish one possibly a night owl begonia? Will it change color later on or something?

Probably going to try to get a refund on the plant, it was supposed to be a night owl begonia but it doesn't look anything like one xd Are there any cheap reliable places where I can order one?

The white fuzzy (hairs) is normal and very common in Solanum species as well as some other member of Solanaceae such as Tomato, Physallis and many other.
The green one could be young plants of Solanum nigrum a very common weed popping in pots, but could also other member of Solanaceae like Physalys the ground cherry.

The red one is indeed a "Rex Begonia", it seems consistent with Night Owl Begonia, which seems a newer cultivar of "Rex Cultorum Begonia", there are so many cultivar of Rex Begonia, some are very similar especially as a young plant

Could they possibly be young eggplants? That is what they look like to me.

Could also be eggplant (Solanum melongena), although chance is not so high that eggplant seedling will be popping spontaniously, and those seedlings seems clustered made me think it came from a decayed small fruit.
When it grow larger it will be more apparent.

If the green plant is a weed should I pull it then? How do I pull it without it regrowing and not killing the other plant?

Cutting them off at the soil level would probably kill those seedlings.

Hello
This plant looks very much like a Begonia - Begonia rex, f.i.
Best regards

The dark plant has already been identified, as previous posts show, thus the thread is marked as such. nodding

I hate to be a wet blanket. But apps guess, there is no 100% guarantee of accuracy. Always research what the app tells you to se if it really checks out.
Plant it and they will come.

The ap could say anything and if you didn't know to begin with, you wouldn't know if the answer given by the ap is correct. Examples of incorrect ap ID's appear here often.
