Sinn question from a newbie sinn grower

Saluda, SC(Zone 8a)

I purchased a plant of Sinningia - Xanadu (x self) at the DAVS convention and actually ended up with seedpod from which I got oddles of plants. Now I am trying to decide what to do with the mama plant. It has grown and bloomed beautifully. Now it seems kind'a overgrown to me.

The photo shows what it looks like presently. There are several good size suckers under those large browning leaves; can I cut the main stem near the bottom and root it as I would an AV; but let the suckers form a multi-headed plant. I have no idea what a properly grown plant looks like.

This a tray of babies from the above plant. I put them in the plug tray about 10 days ago.

Since it is a mini you can cut off browning leaves and stems any time.It is fine to grow it multi-crowned although I don't know the rules when entering a show.You can root the top easily,but if it is done producing and looking tired,just toss it.The leaves do look a little curled under,maybe too much light.

Here is a picture of one grown muti-crowned.
