So, I should cut the stalk (the long, stiff, green thing coming out of the middle) as far down as possible to remove it from the mother plant.

Then, I'll have the stalk with 3 "nodes" of new growth. (I am calling the little bunches of tiny green balls nodes.)

Then, I remove the stalk from the babies and plant them. Do I plant all of those little nodes, as well? Or should I wait until all of the little green balls bloom into new leaves? Or are the roots coming out of those little green balls? It's hard for me to tell.
