Default Is this pup ready?

Should I let this pup get a little bigger before I remove it? How much of the stolon should I keep on the pup? Thanks in advance.

I read that when they get to about half way up adult. I took mine off way to early before they had the shoot off, but they are still all alive. So yours is long been ready

yeah, just leave some stem for you to attach it in wall and prevent rotting.

Ok, it has a ways to go before it hit 1/2 the size of the mother. I will leave it for a while.

Waiting until it is at least 1/3 the size of the mother allows for more success with the pup if you don't have much experience with them... they can be taken off earlier they just have more issues sometimes. Your pup could currently be successfully taken off, but longer won't hurt it much... except for the growing into the glass issue. Take it off before it starts getting big enough for that to hurt the growth (when it pushes up against the glass).

Take as much of the stolon as you want/need. I usually take off as much as I can off the mother plant, and then trim the stolon to the length needed for me to mount the pup.

Thanks Corey. That's the answer I was looking for. I decided 2 more weeks would be ok, then into the grow tank it goes!
