This beast is growing fast and well, but his pot is getting very enclosed. I have never replanted anything of this sort and I don’t want to cause any damage. Is there a proper process. Also, the pups shown, can they be removed?
Thank you in advance,

You won’t damage it…

First, dump the plant out of the pot onto your outstretched hand. Then look at the roots; are they filling the entire soil ball? Then you’ll need to disentangle them a bit. If they are showing shriveled or brown bits, cut them off with sharp scissors.

Then prepare your pot – see this page to determine the correct size. Make sure it’s got a drain hole!

Then, assemble your soil; this needs to be dry, and fast draining. More about that  here.

Yes you can remove the pups – just pull them off and plant them separately.

Don’t water for a couple of days, to let the torn / cut roots callous.
