    Hey all,

    I was just wondering the proper way to prune this particular plant. My plants are growing well but are starting to become a bit tall and blocking light from other species. I'd love to get new growth if possible but I definitely need to chop it. I'm just not sure whether to do it from the bottom or the top. Please let me know if you have some experience growing this beauty.

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    Uproot, snip off the lower part and replant the top, then stuff the bottom portion somewhere or ina terrarium etc and it'll sprout new tops after a week or two, then get decent sized in another 2 weeks or so.

    Would the stems sprout in the tank I'm currently doing the dry start method in?
