Hi there friends. I have this unruly N. x velvet (thanks PK for teaching me the right way to write this...) whom refuses to make a basal of any sort. I'm thinking of cutting it in half, and sticking the cutting in the pot to hopefully spur some bushy-ness. See below marked picture!
First of all, should I do it? I have never taken a cutting before, and this plant is supposedly hearty after all. Things to note... From those arrows downward, the cutting has become very woody. It originally had two leaves below the soil line, but when I repotted it once, I planted it deeper due to the fact that it had become woody. I digress. The main point, from where, if anywhere! would you take a cutting. Also interesting is that the newest leaf on top, is larger then the last two produced.
And, on a side note, if anybody can explain the circled "?" item, I would appreciate it. That has been there since I received the plant, and has not changed one bit. I think it's a failed activated node or something. Thanks in advance for your help friends! I'm going to learn this hobby if its the last thing I do.
