Plant is pushing itself out from the pot

MsGreenFinger GW(8 Ireland)August 12, 2014

My Sans 'friends' is not too big and is kept in a semi-hydro culture so there is no soil in the pot but only clay pellets. The potting media is therefore very light. The plant has developed a large rhizome growing downwards and pushing the plant out from the pot. How can I make the rhizome grow vertically so a pup would emerge? Or can I shorten the rhizome?

Tough luck on your rhizome growth; it happens. However, if you were to sever the rhizome it should live and grow on its own. The vertical grandis rhizome in this picture survived a cut from the parent. You might wait until you can't stand it any longer before you cut.
