Very overgrown Variegated Cassava. Cut back now?
I picked up one on clearance last week. The poor thing was in a two gallon-ish pot, about 6 feet tall, two main trunks, branched widely about 2 1/2 feet up (must have pinched it), and floppy and top heavy as all get-out. It's pretty but basically a mess.
I've never had one of these, but everything I read seems to indicate they're easy to grow, and easy to propagate by stem cuttings.
Think I should just whack it back now, put the cuttings in to root, and hope it makes a decent, more compact and manageable plant by the end of the summer?
