Wire Plant

How do I put an established wire plant into a decorative wired top? My wire plant is beautiful and hangs down about 12 inches. I wanted to show it off so I bought a nice wire cage top to put over it. My question is: do I have to cut off the long growth first and let it regrow or is there some trick to getting it into the top, made of what looks like chicken wire?

It all depends really on whether you can very carefully feed your wire plant into the holes of the chicken wire without damaging the plant. I suppose you could always snip the chicken wire to make the holes larger in order to make it easier to feed your plant through, if you encountered difficulty. It all depends on what you are comfortable with. If not, I would hate to see you cut a beautiful plant!
