I bought a strelitzia nicolai and it came with a surprise stowaway palm growing in the pot. I'm not one to complain, but I think I should tease them apart before they grow to suffocate each other. I tried unearthing the stem of the palm but it seems to go very deep, maybe into the other plant's root ball.
Is there an easy way to separate them? I don't mind damaging the palm if it's unavoidable, but I want to be sure I won't hurt the other plant.
