I think you would be fine with chopping the big stem off and replanting the big stem elsewhere.

That really is a pretty plant and the more I see of it, the more I want it over the red varieties.

Chop it off and re-plant the top.

I would cut it now, unless you like the way it looks.
Cut right above where the off-shots are connected to the parent plant. Cut the trimming right under the first set of leaves at the bottom. Strip off 4-6 nodes of leaves and plant.

And it's looking good.
