Default Moving Goldfinger?

As you can see the Goldfinger Pstem did not survive the winter.
I want to move the good parts of the goldfinger to a location and let this area go back to grass or something else.

Should I cut off the Pstem then dig up the whole thing and replant the whole thing n the new location or just cut the pups off and plant them?

I'd dig it up whole and leave the stem, just incase there is fuel for the pups in it even if it is an eye sore.. I think the pups are too small to separate. Good Luck.. My p-stem made it so I guess I'm lucky. :^)

The mat is small so it would be doable to dig it up intact. Leave the pstem as is. Makes a good handle to move the mat with. When it dries up later and bends over easily cut it off at 6 to 8 inches.

The main stem corm will provide the "juice" to grow out the pups fast.
