I have what I think is a elephant ear begonia which has grown very large but has not flowered in several years. What does it need?

I suggest that you start by pruning it way back - as much as you can stand. Tip cuttings will root readily in water or small pots filled with damp potting mix.

Keep your Angelwing Begonia tightly potted and fertilize it monthly at half-strength to promote flowering.

That spot might not be enough light for blooming.

Try to be more valuable than a bad example.
