Change limit of expanded children (REST API)

I am fetching several levels of children through the REST API using the expand functionality, but I am unable to figure out how to change the limit of the number of children returned.  It is always 25, even if I raise the limit on the top level.  Is this possible?  If so what is the syntax?


The call I am making is rest/api/content/search?cql=id=111&limit=200&,

You probably need to provide more details on exactly which REST api you are using and with what arguments?

Good point @Robert Massaioli, updated my question to include the path that I am using.

Anybody found the answer to this?

Running into the same issue as Gary so I tried to call children directly attached to a page, with the hopes that the API would accept a limit on that call:
