Cut down in it's (not so) prime
The dreaded deed has been done!
All that is left is a tiny stub and a tiny leaf to go with it.
What was extraordinary was that the poor pathetic plant had one hell of a strong stem. Once I'd started cutting and realised how strong the stem actually was I almost decided to stop, but then again, once I'd started it seemed ridiculous to stop.
I'm not sure that it will survive such drastic action, only time will tell. But it was not doing well in the state it was and so doing something seemed better than doing nothing.
Keep your fingers crossed.
