to the base of
the crown. Then set the crown aside for a week or two to
cure.

After curing, pull off the lowest tier of leaves and plant the
crown in a rich potting soil covering the base up to where
the lower leaves attach. Water thoroughly at planting and
then only lightly a couple of times a week. Avoid keeping
the soil too wet. Place the plant in a very bright area but out
of direct sunlight for a few weeks. When the plant develops
roots and new top growth is evident, move it to a bright,
sunny location and increase the watering and fertilizing.
