Hi Oriole,
I got a piece from a friend who rooted a leaf. Mine is fairly slow growing so far. I have seen them for sale on internet sites, but they are still a bit pricey. In a few years, I suspect they will be rather widely available. I would offer you a piece of mine but it is still too small right now.
One of the DG members posted a picture on a thread...I copied it to my hard drive for inspiration...I will attach it here. Wish I could remember who posted it. It is fantastic.

Edited to add a link to the picture and a photo credit. Datdog posted this picture of the begonia and this link goes to the thread. http://davesgarden.com/forums/t/456132/
Hope you don't mind, Datdog!
