OK, so I am a tree guy and a little out of my league on this.

I have a Sago and it has a polyp (I think that is the correct term), I would call it a sucker forming at the root crown. I have heard that you can take these off and pot them to grow a new sago.

1) how do you go about doing this (use a knife and cut a wedge or just rip the sucker off)?
2) and more importantly, how do you do this wrong?

This was a gift from my fater-in-law and I would hate to divide it only to kill it.
