I bought this plant on line about 10 months ago. It was suppose to be blooming age but I did not realize another plant came up until recently.it is attached to the mother plant. It’s much taller than the mother plant. I’m not sure if I should remove and transplant or leave alone. Mother plant has not bloomed. What do I do?
