Will tip cuttings work or should I dig up a hunk of it to use in another container? See, I have this really good idea (AND I too hear the laughter of the gods.)

Can't complain too loud about how the ball bounces when I'm the one who dropped it.

Well, if I looked up the right plant in the database ( Licorice Plant (Helichrysum petiolare) ), it does say that it can be propagated by stem cuttings. If it were me, I'd give it a try! What do you have to lose but a little time? Hilarious!
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

Thank You! Huh guess I could have looked it up but didn't even think about it. So thanks again. I was going to try it no matter what, but then had those what ifs going on. So, glad I asked. And now I have looked it up myself - didn't know it had a taproot but the paver it sits on should deal with that issue. Hurray!
