Q.Donkeys tail pruning bare vines

Csmithey added on November 15, 2017 | Answered

I just received this plant that was left from previous tenants. There are a good ten vines that are bare from roots and have about two feet before the leaves start. My question is should I cut the bare vine part off completely?

You can, but this will change the shape of the plant. It will want to regrow from the branching point right above the soil level. You can take all of these leaflets, and put them into moist soil. They will each grow into full plants.

When you go to cut them, they will likely drop most of their leaflets. This is ok, and it will recover.
