    Adelae gone wild, need help with "trimming"

    I have way too many "babies" from this plant and some are coming out from the bottom of the pot as you can tell from the pic. What is the best way to go about getting rid of the overcrowdedness? Can I cut from any point on the offshoots or would that be harmful? I know adelae is a tough plant but I don't want to hurt the growth that I leave in the pot...

    I guess I may be throwing these up in the trading post section if anyone is looking for some LOL

    Just snip 'em off at the drain holes. If the mother plants are putting out runners like you won't hurt the mothers

    Can I do the same for some of them actually growing out of the top (like they are supposed to lol)? I don't want those to get too crowded either...

    Sure, just leave a few inches of the runner attached to the pup - it will supply some nutrients or act as a root until it get rooted. I've seen pots and trays jammed packed with D. adelae. I don't think they mind crowding all that much.

    I just divided a plant that grew for more than 4 years and I haven't seen the pot for at least 2.5 years. Your pot has a long way to go before it gets really overcrowded & unhappy (mine wasn't unhappy when I repotted).
    All the best,
