    oh let it grow a foot or two..
    you do realize you can buy cuttings online, so you can experiment without killing yours.

    You should let it be quite a few feet before cutting it, and you should plant another cutting from it, when you doo harvest it.

    It will need a pot many times the size of that one, too.

    That one looks like it's been growing in very dispersed light, minimal water, etc. It doesn't look unhealthy, but not fast growing, and totally vertical, with a very round tip.

    And yes, that is T. peruvianus.
