What? Lop off the top of such a plant? I wouldn't have the nerve! Ramona mother plants are offset making machines so take that one off the list!

I have never used this method for anything other than no hope plants and as a final resort.

Please don`t start using this method on your prized plants till you have tried on a few everyday varieties.

Joan,

I did (not by choice) on 3 plants: Crown Prince, Brown Eyed Girl and Sabrine Delphine, so far so good.  I might just do it on Bronze Green Boy next.

I was just kidding, but obviously, this is a great thread to keep in the what to do file should the dread crown rot hit one of the most prized plants.  Next time, when I go around and rescue the "leftovers", I will try this method out and see what happens.  I am very intrigued by the cross mark made on the top of the stump.  J/.

Hi Lionel

Oh no!  Lady Antoinne was one of my favourites from last season, thank goodness I got some seed.  On the possitive side, maybe I'll be able to buy one of those offsets from you LOL!!

An amazing thread - thankfully, I haven't had to do this, but at least I know what to do now.
Isn't it Murphy's Law that it's always the best / favourite plants that go
down with something?
Lady Antoinne is such a beautiful girl.

Great photos Lionel.

Hello Giovanni.
                  It is BEST to leave the offsets on the mother plant untill they are flowering size ...  12 leaf.

Regards,
          Lionel.

Hi Lionel

Thanks for the information - valuable for me too!

What do you think of multiplying a plant - especially those that don't produce offsets or seed - by cutting it vertically (like your cross) into 4 quarters.

Split the roots and leaves into 4 even quarters vertically - treat the wounds with a sealer and plant all 4 in a sterile mix? Will it be faster to grow 4 clones by means of the vertical division than the horizontal division that you showed us?

Hello Andre ,
                I think people are giving me undeserved compliments.
This is the first time I have cut the cross , just to see if it works.
I am trying because I have spare offsets of that plant.
 I have been successfull with getting 4 offsets out of 1 stump without cutting.
I am sure your idea would work , the trick would be to keep the wounds sterile.
Regards,
           Lionel.

Hi Lionel,

That is great news! In time, Lady Antoine will be restored to her former glorious self.

I must also thank you for the original post. Sadly I had to revert to this treatment on one of my plants this past weekend for the first time, but had the best demonstation for dummies that I could have hoped for and that enabled me to know exactly what to do. The remnants of my victim are safely biding time now...

Your follow up post this evening has really given me much hope.

Thank you for sharing your extensive knowledge so willingly.
