    Advice on potting plant with broken stalk.

    Hey guys,
    I got this plant today and the stalk was broken. Any advice on how to go about potting it would be greatly appreciated. I would like to ensure it's survival.

    Personally, I would just snip the stalk and treat the plant like a cutting. Pot up the root ball as well, it's definitely possible that new growth will emerge from a node or the base.
