Yucca offsets

I bought 2 little variegated yuccas from the clearance trolley at my local garden centre yesterday. They seem to have offset nodules climbing and bursting out of their pots, can I slice these off to pot on as a new plant or should I wait until there's some proper growth, or neither? They're only about an inch and a half long and some have a green stump on the end (like a growing ginger rhizome). I will be repotting the plants anyway into new bigger pots as the current pots are so split and being pushed off.

    I'd be tempted to leave them on the plant until they are a bit larger.  It's not a good time of year to try and root offsets.
  • Thankyou Muddyfork,  I'll take your advice and just repot the whole plants, I wouldn't want to lose them through my impatience to propogate more plants.
