Answer: Luckily, this is not a fussy plant when it comes to repotting. Water it well the day before you repot, then turn the pot on its side and wiggle the plant out as best you can --- stake, rootball and all. Repot at the same depth it grew originally using a slightly larger pot and insert a new stake or affix an extension onto the original. The plant will soon cover any "mechanics" so make sure it is secure and sturdy enough to support the plant. Direct the new growth onto the new stake as needed. Another approach is to start an entirely new plant using tip cuttings from the original. Whne you do this, use a stake of the desired ultimate height when potting it up or use a stake that you can easily extend. The stake may seem too high at first, but eventually as you repot the plant into successively larger pots, it will look in proportion.
