It's a begonia and just clip back above an node on the stem, you can root the clippings in water to make new plants.

Great! Thanks for your advice! Can I take the clippings (I wont clip more than one or two at a time) and just put them in a jar of water for a while? Will roots sprout in a couple weeks?

That's how I do it and I change the water approx. once a week.
