It is best advised not to trim more than 30% of the plant at any one time. Trim the plant back a third, then let it acclimate and start growing new shoots again before you determine if you want to trim some more. But, 1/3 is probably enough of a trim to get you some good propagation vines, and to stimulate the plant itself (not that it needs it! 😂).

Also, Welcome to Greg, Ed! @TrailingJade. That is a really beautiful plant you have there, and it's obviously happy! Good job!
Hi Ed, welcome to Greg!

I agree with @UltraKoreanfir. The general rule of thumb for a "big" trim is 1/3 of the plant.
