+Vaishali Honawar The suckers are actually attached to and grow from the root of the mother plant. The soil in my pots is very loose so I can usually grab a handful of soil along with the sucker and pull out the sucker plant and whatever roots come with it. At the same time I am holding down the soil around the mother plant so I don't pull it out as well. That does a little damage to the roots of the bigger plant but they usually survive the experience as long as you are not separating multiple sucker plants at the same time.

That may not be the best way to do it and I may not have described it well but that is what has worked for me.

If the soil in your pot isn't real loose, probably the best way to separate the sucker from the mother plant would be to cut a circle straight down into the soil with a knife all the way around the new plant (about a couple inches away) cutting through whatever roots are there. Then lift out the plug of soil and roots along with the new plant. Be sure to fill the void with new soil.

Good luck if you try this! I would feel terrible if you damaged your precious plant!

You could also go to a local nursery and get more professional advice to make sure.

These whole-wheat chocolate chunk bars are divine with the sweetness of maple syrup and the crunchiness of pecans. Did I say they are very chocolaty?

I had been craving — deeply, darkly, intensely craving — something chocolate-y. I woke up in the mornings thinking of a rich, moist chocolate cake drowning in frosting. I went to bed at night and dreamed of plates stacked high with fudgy brownies. And in between all I wanted to do was dig my teeth into a...Read More »
