"I would recommend cutting down the plants and making a horizontal cut deep into the meristem, this will destroy the apical dominance and encourage the growth of new pups." Gabe15.

Hi, Gabe. If I make a horizontal cut I would end up with two pieces. The upper piece should contain the apical meristem, which I should be able to TC.
The lower piece would pup. Is this correct? Thanks, Alberto.

I didnt originally mean that, but yes you can do that sometimes if the corm is large enough.
