If you cut a piece off the root in the soil, isn't the part left exposed where you cut susceptible to rotting? I heard somewhere to leave the plant to harden the area a bit before planting, but i don't know how that is meant to work in the soil..

You say you are temperate and by this guide they don't suggest growing in temperate. Best grown in tropic and sub-tropic. Plants are pretty tough sometimes. 2 options, break some off and leave the piece in the ground exposed to the air to dry. Or don't water it for a few days/week or so.
