Help needed to identify this house plant.

Can anyone help identify this houseplant. It's grown from a cutting bought at a church fair quite a few years ago. The underside of leaves are red and it's a trailing plant.

    It's never flowered. Is this usual for a begonia?

    begonia erythrophylla ?
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
  • They do flower, but the flowers are nothing special on foliage varieties like yours.

    Just looked it up. I think I should try repotting it. It's still in it's original pot 🙄. I must have had it at least 12 years.

    It must be very happy with your care and its position, but deserves some tlc after 12 years :)
