Repotting "Girl" foliage
Hello! Long time lurker, first time poster, and I've gotten lots of great info here over the years. I usually hang out at the Vegetable and Cooking forums.
A question about how to repot a plant with what I believe is called "Girl" foliage? It is very extreemely ruffled and variagated at the same time, with a pink double flower that blooms almost constantly. They have gotten to the "palm tree" stage as I call it. With the flat leaf varieties I would cut the stem, clean up a few basal leaves and the base and insert the rootless stem in new medium.
With these, the foliage is so convoluted that I would have to remove a majority of the leaves to get the crown within 2" of the soil. Do I simply go with aesthetics and clean up the plant, leave enough stem to reroot and go from there? The plants never really seem to form a traditional AV shape, they are almost ball shaped and lumpy.
They are very attractive if nontraditional. Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
