To split or not to split?
Good morning, Greggers! Meet Keanu - my most proud achievement as a plant parent.

Keanu is actually 2 separate stalks and I'm at a quandary as to if I should separate and repot the stalks.

He's doing really well in this spot and both stalks are continuing to produce growth. And I think he's perfectly content in his pot (which he's been in for a year) so ... Is he fine to leave as is? #flf #fiddleleaffig
2ft to light, direct
14” pot with drainage

He’s beautiful! πŸ˜πŸ’š I say leave him be! I love how full he looks as he is 😍
@saatwood thanks ☺️ he's had a rough time for a bit but now he's happy and thriving! (hence the name πŸ™‚)

I also love how full he looks! And he's direct eyeline of our front door, so guests almost always compliment him. β™₯️
Your comment makes me think you know the answer... @RedHeadPlants he is happy.....let him live full in his current pot!
I would absolutely leave him. He looks happy and healthy. He is truly quite stunning!
@saatwood, @PlantEsteem, @malobee - thanks! He's probably my fave plant (but I say that about all of them!)

My only thought for separating is that he drinks A LOT of water. I fear he might be root bound soon.

But I'll cross that bridge when he stops thriving. He's doing good and I don't want to bother him.
@RedHeadPlants Agree with everyone else :) he looks great so far! 🌿✨
