I had to cut mine as well for other reasons but with the same purpose. Following the advise of some of the guys here, I did cut leaving at least a foot long with leaves just in case it had no more reserves in the root system. The plants stayed shy for a couple of weeks and they started to show the two tips. Heard that one of the splits will be leader and will grow faster than the other. Cutting back also seemed to have stimulated the shooting more bines at the base. As they are first year i plan to leave them grow all.
Just wanted to show you a picture of it.
