New Janet Craig growth sprouting from the side?

Plant newbie here! I recently acquired a very large Janet Craig. I wanted to shorten one of the stalks a little bit and read that you can cut the stalk directly from the top and new growth would eventually sprout. Well, its been a couple of months since I gave my Janet Craig a haircut, and the new growth is sprouting out from the side of the stalk instead of the top.

Does anyone know what I did wrong or how I might prune it differently so it sprouts from the top? :)
