Several months ago I spotted basal shoots on several neps. I am wondering how best to remove them. Are they separate little plants coming upfrom the root system, or are they shoots from the stem?
If the former, it should pretty easy to remove. If the latter, do the new shoots have their own roots?
I have previously just cut back the "mother" plant to the ground, allowed the basal shoots to utilze the original root system, and rooted the cuttings. This time I would like to remove and plant the basal shoots on their own.
