I don't move the growing point for macropropagation, I move it to reduce the rate of rot.
For people that don't realize that every a'ea'e rots this procedure would seem pointless.
Move and remove are two different procedures and are done to accomplish two distinctly different objectives.
Most people intentionally kill the main growing point aka main pseudostem when they macropropagate because they don't know any better. The macropropagation process is exactly the same whether it's killed or removed, with the only difference being removing it allows it to be planted somewhere else and later macropropagated again.
