I will remove some of the suckers so that the upper shoots will grow more; otherwise the suckers will surely take over. Do not repot.

Experiments were carried out on the effect of temporary dark exposure on adventitious root formation (ARF). Histological and metabolic changes in the cuttings during the dark treatment and subsequent rooting in the light were recorded. Excised cuttings were exposed to the dark for some days and followed by a rooting period in perlite. Dark exposure prior to rooting increased, accelerated and synchronized ARF. The rooting period was reduced. Also, despite the reduced rooting period, dark-exposed cuttings produced a higher number and length of roots than non-treated cuttings. Root meristem formation had already started during the dark treatment and was enhanced during the subsequent rooting period. Levels of soluble sugars (glucose, fructose and sucrose) and starch in leaf and basal stem tissues significantly decreased during the days of dark exposure. This depletion was, however, compensated during rooting for soluble sugars in leaves and the basal stem, respectively, whereas the sucrose level in the basal stem was increased. The association of higher carbohydrate levels with improved rooting in previously dark-exposed versus non-treated cuttings indicates that increased post-darkness carbohydrate availability and allocation towards the stem base contribute to ARF under the influence of dark treatment and provide energy for cell growth subject to a rising sink intensity in the base of the cutting.
