Thats what I said you were right,

but it’s my fault I was ignorant of the possibility that it is just a male-female misunderstanding. Maybe you just wanted to moan about what fate has befallen your Hope Cephalotus and maybe you wanted to be comforted and then, I dump male come along with solutions and definitions.

While you were politely ignoring my clumsiness I rudely insisted that there are already the best solutions and explanations served, and you best leave your precious plant alone like you intended.

On top I supposed that you might be a layman, what ignorance.

I agree I am guilty and won’t bother you again with plain facts and definitions, I am completely wrong (whatever I say must be wrong).
Sorry I am only a handicapped human, a male and even discussing not in my native language
Fare well and all the best to hope.
How about we just agree that we both got off on the wrong foot here. I do appreciate your wanting me and hope and i do appreciate your info and input.
I appreciate everyone's help that is why I come here. I did not want this post to turn sour like it did.

You can take cuttings the bits under the medium surface that people call "roots". I am no botanical expert but a rhizome is a specialized underground stem. It has nodes. Nodes can produce stems, leaves, and roots. I don't think a root in a "botanical sense" has nodes so you cannot take a cutting from a root.

Think root ginger, it is not a root but a rhizome but it is called root ginger.

So in all the texts that you have read when they say root cutting, they have incorrectly called it a root when it is a rhizome - but everyone knows what bit of the plant they are talking about.
