You can also wrap the smaller point in some fresh sphagnum to encourage that root bud to keep developing.

    This is sounding like a better idea. Maybe I will just grow it out as is, and let it develop the roots some more. I don't know why I just felt compelled to hack it in half.

    The lure of the dark side, I mean, having more plants is great. Use the force or something.
    Good growing, Jack
