I have a Euphorbia grandicornis (Cow's horn) that is extremely root bound. It belonged to my father and I know that it was in the current pot for at least 4 years. I am attempting to re-pot and I am not exactly sure what the best method is. Trim the roots and re-pot or cut away from main stem that looks dead and re-pot?

Thanks for any help!
Jen

If it was mine I would pull the green sections off the old plant, let them callous for a couple or more days and plant in a good succulent mix. You'll have a brand new much prettier plant(s).
