"Rossing" or "Crown Cutting"  Is done with a clean sharp knife.  It is 
inserted through the base of the plant, just below the point where the 
leaves start, and then pulled down through the base, and root system. In 
a larger plant this can be done several directions, forming wedges. The 
goal should be to have at least one bud, on each section.  "Bud 
Isolation" requires that a shallow slit is made , starting at a common 
point just above the bud, and continuing beside the bud and down through 
the base, leaving the bud connected at the back.
