I'd use an extremely sharp blade for a clean cut which bruises tissue as
little as possible. Like a razor blade or craft knife.
As far as treating the amputation, I can tell you what NOT to use: Cleary
123, which is a powerful commercial fungicide I use on Orchids. I dipped the
cut ends of Anubias in this powder on several occasions and each time the
result was much worse than when I did nothing.
