I have a small AW faizaliana that has two growth points. One is smaller than the other, but it is a TC split between the two. The smaller growth point is kind of pinned beneath the larger growth point. I was going to divide the two plants when I received it, but when I removed all the soil I saw that the two growth points were attached to the same rootwad.
This differs of course from a basal, or a vine cutting. I'm just wondering, how much a plant can take having it's growth points split, if I were to divide the two. The plant is very healthy and adjusted to my conditions. I do feel like the smaller growth point is sort of stifled beneath the larger one though.
It would be nice to have two separate plants instead of one fun-fest.
Do you guys have experience in dividing plants that are in this situation? Would you recommend doing it?
If I were to do it, would it be better to do it now when the plant (s) are smaller or later when the plant is larger and has a thicker root system?
