If you are allowing the plant to go dormant, it may be a good idea to trim it up and stick it in a dark location. Otherwise, you can allow the plant to continue its growth, treating it as a houseplant. Of course, it may suffer less stress if trimmed as well. This is up to you and dependent on the type of begonia you have.
