I have divided hybrid tuberous begonias in the past and never lost one. Just 
this spring I  divided one the size of a saucer with many  buds, into three 
parts. They are up and growing. In out climate they will not be outside 
until the end of May. It feels  quite summer like now after six month of 
winter, but this weather cannot be trusted.
Taking leaf cutting is interesting. I must try it on my Blackmore and 
Langdon hybrids. They are so darn expensive and the tubers are tiny.
