Brand new plant

Just purchased my first Elephant Bush and was looking for some advice. I repotted because roots were already growing out the nursery pot when I purchased. I kept the "root ball" intact for the most part. Did pull a little off the top area just to get rid of some dead debris and such. I noticed the stems aren't all connected towards a center base. I'm not sure if that's normal for this species or if the nursery planted multiple stems in 1 container. Again, replanted as is in a new terracotta pot that's about 1/2 inch bigger than the root ball of the plant. Was this the way to go? Should I have done something different? Any advice and tips on these plants appreciated.

Thanks

From my experience, what you described with the stems not being connected is what my plant has. They are really slow growers so I think the 1/2” will serve it well. It’s a desert plant from what I understand, so it likes to dry out between waterings, and mine is in a full sun window just living its best life!
