Greetings. My Cephalotus is starting to become a little over-grown. Newer leaves are crowding out others and the entire plant is a big mess with multiple grow points.
The obvious solution would be to uproot the plant and separate it, however I don't want to disturb the soil.
I was reading in a carnivorous plant book (the authors were from Peter Pauls Nurseries) and it talked about plant decapitation. Basically, the entire upper portion of the plant is clipped off at ground level, leaving the base of the stem on the surface and the roots ready to start growing again. The clipped portion can then be potted and will grow roots as a cutting.
What do you think? Good idea?
