Default Separating pups of Truly Tiny and Double Mahoi

With fall approaching, I decided to remove the pups from 'Truly Tiny' and 'Double Mahoi', which I've had since late February (pictured). My first attempt to remove one from TT was pretty easy, so with this new confidence, I went and accidentally ruined one pup on DM. The latter pup is in banana ICU, without great expectations. I approached the removal of the 2 last pups from DM with much greater care, and now have one large division and one much smaller (pictured), which I mailed to a friend.

My hope is that with 6 weeks of 'warmish' outdoor weather left, that all the plants will be established enough to get through 6 months in my basement growing area. With LED reflectors, it's good enough for them to survive, but not really thrive. Their growth since going outside 2 months ago has been explosive by comparison.
I'll be removing a total of 3 or 4 pups from Truly Tiny tomorrow, and will probably list them to sell here.
At this late date, I'm glad that these haven't bloomed, as I've been told it takes up to 6 months to go from flower to ripe fruit.
The other picture shows Double Mahoi with one huge offset, and the smaller one, which I sent to a friend.
