Hi my name is Wes and in this video segment I’m going to show you how to propagate your plants through dividing them. If you want to know more about these plants you can visit us at so when your plant gets to be a certain age, usually older 3-5 years old, they will start to develop more plants in the same pot and what you want to do is divide these plants up so that you can have more plants and also to give each individual plant enough room to grow. So the way you want to start this off is by removing the plant gently from its pot, you want to remove as much soil from the root system as you can so that you can easily identify where each plant is separated from the other. Here you can see we have several plants in this system, you want to gently buy firmly separate the plants trying to keep each individual root system as intact as you can. You want to make sure that each new separate plant comes away with enough roots to survive on its own. After you’ve separated the plants, you want to pot each one with the correct potting soil, again nice moist soil. Here we’ve got three separate plants so we’re going to use 3 separate pots. Making a hole for the root system, placing the plant down and again you want to make sure not to pack the soil around the plant too firmly, in order to give the roots enough room to grow. And from here you can see that from the one plant we now have three.
