i have a stem that is bout 13-14 inches , the top is beautiful , the middle is alright and the bottom is bare . the question is ...it is finally settlin in and has three shootis off the very bottom , i am excited it is propagating some new stems for me but would the little guys benefit from chopping the big stem off or should i wait till they get bigger? the shoots are only maybe inch long

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. :)
