So I have an E. Peruvianus crest that appears to be reverting back to normal growth. Normally one would cut the normal growth off so the plant puts its energy into the crest.
Unfortunately I received this plant after a large portion had already begun to revert. Which means if I cut off the normal growth a significant portion of the plant will be a big ugly scar.
I'm looking for ideas for what to do.
Do I leave it and hope that some of the new growths will begin cresting again? (one tip in the center of the plant appears to be doing that)
Do I cut the normal growth off and hope the crest will hide the scars?
Do I hot needle the tips?
Any ideas would be very much appreciated.
