Two trunks?

Hello there!

I’ve recently received a FLF as a gift. I really love the new plant. However, I love the look of a singular tree trunk. I see two trunk and I did some research and would rather not bind the bush to grow into one. I asked the giver if they noticed if the root had two ball, but they did not pay much attention when they repotted the FLF. I am afraid of investigation for the fear the FLF might not like being disturbed continuously. I just received the plant yesterday as it was also repotted one day ago. The plant is about 20-24 inches high. I would like to repot them separately. But would love your knowledge on this topic. I noticed that one of the trunk has a damaged top and I am afraid it will branch from that damaged top instead of growing straight from the damage. If I was to repot them into separate containers. Would you recommend waiting until next summer? I am afraid the root will start to intertwine and be difficult to separate later on. I live in Louisiana so it won’t be cold until another 1-2 months from now. What is your opinion on this matter. Sorry if I ramble and it is confusing!

    Good question - in separating the two trunks you would want to do it sooner so they don't continue to grow together, but I understand your concern with having already disturbed the plant. The season isn't as big of an issue as the shock, as they like consistency. I would probably go for it now and be careful to give them TLC and proper care afterwards. Be as gently as you can in separating the root systems. Let me know how it goes and good luck!
